Merkle path is always appeared in many examples relevant with verification of transaction. but they never explain how merkle path is generated.

So, I was wondering that how merkle path is generated.

I think that there are two parts.

  1. Finding a block that contains requested transaction.
  2. Construct a merkle path using merkle tree that full-node has already.

But I have no idea about second part. what is the mechanism of second part?

Sorry for my English.
