Yes... that's why I wrote 2005 in parenthesis.

Not really the answer I was looking for.

Actually what I need is a container to associate an ID with an object and to
enable very fast lookups to see if the item I'm looking for does already
exist (has an ID) or not.

My current implementation uses the STL map, but as far as I know, a hash map
would be a far better choice for consequent lookups and as my object
(currently 4-tuple unsigned int) count in the map could potentially reach
one to two million. Here speed is everything.

STLPort has unordered_* containers. I'm not sure how they are

I don't really want to add additional libraries, that aren't needed. I'd
rather solve it with the already available tools.

Thx for the example and the explanation, I'll try it out.
