Having defined `A`

and `G`

as follows,

```
sage: A = Matrix([[0, 1], [1, 0]])
sage: G = DiGraph(A)
```

we have a directed graph `G`

, which has a method `all_simple_cycles`

.

The following only refers to the method itself

```
sage: G.all_simple_cycles
<bound method DiGraph.all_simple_cycles of Digraph on 2 vertices>
```

while the following is the result of applying the method to `G`

.

```
sage: G.all_simple_cycles()
[[0, 1, 0]]
```

So if we save the method itself,

```
sage: save(G.all_simple_cycles, 'temp22')
```

we can then reload it:

```
sage: asc = load('temp22')
sage: asc
<bound method ?.all_simple_cycles of Digraph on 2 vertices>
```

and possibly apply it to `G`

:

```
sage: asc(G)
[[0, 1, 0]]
```

while if we save the result of applying the method to `G`

,

```
sage: save(G.all_simple_cycles(), 'temp22')
```

then reloading it gets us the list of all simple cycles of G:

```
sage: ascG = load('temp22')
sage: ascG
[[0, 1, 0]]
```
