Supports maps of CObject pointers keyed by 16-bit words.
The member functions of CMapWordToOb are similar to the member functions of class CMapStringToOb. Because of this similarity, you can use the CMapStringToOb reference documentation for member function specifics. Wherever you see a CString or a const pointer to char as a function parameter or return value, substitute WORD.
BOOL CMapStringToOb::Lookup( const char* <key>,
CObject*& <rValue> ) const;
for example, translates to
BOOL CMapWordToOb::Lookup( WORD <key>, CObject*& <rValue> ) const;
CMapWordToOb incorporates the IMPLEMENT_SERIAL macro to support serialization and dumping of its elements. Each element is serialized in turn if a map is stored to an archive, either with the overloaded insertion (<<) operator or with the Serialize member function.
If you need a dump of individual WORD-CObject elements, you must set the depth of the dump context to 1 or greater.
When a CMapWordToOb object is deleted, or when its elements are removed, the CObject pointers are removed. The objects referenced by the CObject pointers are not destroyed.
