Programming Tips - What's the best way to insert into an STL map?
Date: 2006Jan10 Language: C/C++ Q. What's the best way to insert into an STL map? A. Assuming these declarations:typedef std::map<std::string, int, std::less<std::string> > StringToInt; StringToInt m;This will usually work:m["one"] = 1;But this is more clear:m.insert(StringToInt::value_type("one", 1));It has no chance of being confused with a fetch from the map.
