Strong Connected Components

Condensation of the graph

Find the number of edges in the condensation of a given directed graph.

The condensation of a directed graph G is a directed graph G', whose vertices are strongly connected components of G, and the edge in G' is present only if there exists at least one edge between the vertices of corresponding connected components.

The graph condensation does not contain multiple edges.


The first line contains number of vertices n and number of edges m (n10000, m100000) in the graph. Each of the next m lines describe the edge of the graph. The i-th edge is given with the starting bi and the ending ei (1bi, ein) vertex of the graph. The input graph can contain the multiple edges and loops.


Print the number of edges in graph condensation.
