This class provides support for a simple mapping array.
template < class TKey, class TVal, class TEqual = CSimpleMapEqualHelper< TKey, TVal > > class CSimpleMap
CSimpleMap provides support for a simple mapping array of any given type T, managing an unordered array of key elements and their associated values.
The parameter TEqual provides a means of defining an equality function for two elements of type T. By creating a class similar to CSimpleMapEqualHelper, it is possible to alter the behavior of the equality test for any given array. For example, when dealing with an array of pointers, it may be useful to define the equality as depending on the values the pointers reference. The default implementation utilizes operator==().
Unlike other map collections in ATL and MFC, this class is implemented with a simple array, and lookup searches require a linear search. CAtlMap should be used when the array contains a large number of elements.
