Has anybody used the <hash_map> STL ? Though MSDN has a help topic on <hash_map>, i cannot find the include file. It has been authored by P.J.Plauger. I downloaded a copy of the STL from SGI's download site. However, the <hash_map> template is different from that mentioned in MSDN.
<hash_map> doesn't seem that well supported.
Is a hash_map based on Amsterdam?
<hash_map> is *not* part of the C++ standard. According to Scott Meyers in "Effective STL", this is because the standards committee didn't want to delay the standard any more by trying to include everything.
Our C++ toolkit has hashmaps, hashtables, and hashsets. See http://www.recursionsw.com.
Thanks! The templates I downloaded from SGI are not compatible with MSFT's. Lots of compilation problems.
Theres some discussion of the issue here:
