this can help you:

floyd on adjacent matrix W for the graph
    n is the number of rows in W;
    for k = 1 to n
        for i = 1 to n
            for j = 1 to n
                D(k)[i][j]=MIN(D(k-1)[i][j], D(k-1)[i][k] + D(k-1)[k][j]);

means for all i and j, I want to know the minimum path between i and j that k participate in the path,
so for all k, i replace D[i][j] with the min of D[i][j] and D[i][k]+D[k][j], that means, if the path between i -> k, and then k ->j is smaller than the path i->j  that doesn't use k in the path, i use this minimum.

note that you can use one D matrix for above operation.

have a good programming day.
