This function returns a list (containing the order of nodes) travelled using a depth first search starting from the given node.

  node.idx = NULL,
  node.pointno = NULL,
  root.idx = NULL,
  root.pointno = NULL



A neuron

node.idx, node.pointno

The id(s) of node(s) from which distal points will be selected. node.idx defines the integer index (counting from 1) into the neuron's point array whereas node.pointno matches the PointNo column which will be the CATMAID id for a node.

root.idx, root.pointno

The root node of the neuron for the purpose of selection. You will rarely need to change this from the default value. See node argument for the difference between root.idx and root.pointno forms.


Integer 1-based indices into the point array of points that are distal to the specified node(s) when traversing the neuron from the root to that node. Will be a vector if only one node is specified, otherwise a list is returned
