Put the values of source node into tabuk(s);
/* Tabu is used to save the nodes that were reached before t. tabuk(s) denotes the s-th node visited by the k-th ant in the current route and s is the index of tabu table. */
Choose a node j according to the probability：
For every edge(i,j)
For k:=1 to m
empty all tabu; goto step 2.
output the minimum cost path until all nodes have been passed.
