std::vector + std::sort + std::binary_search?
(You'd populate the vector with your data, run std::sort on it,
and then just use std::binary_search from that point forward.)
Other search algorithms which might prove more efficient for your
data type, of course.

Not that I'm aware of, but that doesn't mean there isn't.
