List less than comparison.

template<typename Key,  
    typename Mapped>  
    bool operator<(multimap<Key, Mapped>% left,  
        multimap<Key, Mapped>% right);  


Left container to compare.

Right container to compare.

The operator function returns true if, for the lowest position i for which !(``right``[i] < left``[i]) it is also true that left``[i] < right``[i]. Otherwise, it returns left``->size() < right``->size() You use it to test whether left is ordered before right when the two multimaps are compared element by element.
