STL multimap

Recommended Posts

I can't get multimap to work. Here is a minimal example: #include<vector.h> #include<multimap.h> multimap<vector<char>, vector<char> > dict; vector<char> key; //some lines that put stuff in key vector<char> data; //some lines that put stuff in data dict.insert(pair<vector<char>, vector<char> >(key, data)); The last line produces an entire screen worth of errors (which all disappear when I comment that line out). If anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated. Edited because HTML messed-up all my less-than and greater-than signs Edited by - Mike38722 on December 11, 2001 7:55:21 PM

There is no comparison operator between vectors, even vectors. Therefore, the multimap cannot order your keys. If you want to store strings... store std::strings.
