STL Maps are great! Think of them as Comet keyed files in memory. Instead of READ/WRITE you use STLGet/STLSet. You can also iterate thru them sequentially. I've used them a lot when processing large amounts of data that I want to categorize and tally then send off to a dashboard or other display method. Without the MAP you'd either have to create temporary keyed files on disk or try to use array elements in the program. Arrays are limiting because you need to know in advance the maximum number of elements you'll need. A file or MAP is limitless.
