Maps of int|real array


Do you think possible to extend the language to allow the declaration of maps of array like int[][string] or real[][string] ?

Best regards.

yes, but i don’t like is syntax.

and I am not sure to understand what you want,
can you explain in C++ what is the key type of the map and the mapped value type.

remark: make a double as a key value is not a good idea due to roundoff error.

to day your can do

    real[string] mapr;
    int[string] mapi;

    mapr[2.15]= 6.6;
    mapi[2]= 7;
    // here   2.15 is cast in string "2.15" and 2 in string "2" automatically

we misunderstood each other, the key value is always either a string or a int. The idea is have these two objects :

map<string, int[]>
map<string, real[]>
map<string, string[]>
map<int, int[]>
map<int, real[]>
map<int, string[]>

Best regards.

Yes for

 map<string, int[]>
 map<string, real[]>
 map<string, string[]>

this syntaxe is clear


but for this other we can not used

because it is array of array not map .

I better understand. Do you know when map<string,T[]> will be available ?
Let’s suppose ID (from a medit or gmsh mesh file) be either an int or a string, the motivation comes from the need to store solid IDs according to materials IDs (that goes the same for surface IDs according to boundary condition IDs), ids are not necesserary 0-index and must be arbitrary “big”, it’d be a pity to not use a sparse structure for IDs such as maps.
So that i could write :

int[string][int] MaterialID;
MaterialID[“45757”] = [1214,2354,396,14];
MaterialID[“14664”] = [567,47787,12];


cout<<"Size = "<<MaterialID.n<<endl;

Size = 2
1214 2354 396 14 4
567 47787 12 3



Best regards.

no today, It depend strongly of your need!
