[Ns-developers] Average hop count for MANET routing protocols

Hi all,

I'm running some MANET routing protocol cases and wondering if anyone has
used Average Hop Count as metric for the simulations.  For DSR, it would be
easy, since we can just read the header for each data packet since it is
source routing, but for others like AODV, it would be a little tricky to
get that information.

If anybody has worked on this metric and would like to give some pointers,
I will greatly appreciate that!
