It's a wide shot without an example of your specific data organization, but this is something that might give your desired indexing (being efficient or not is disregarded here):

using namespace std; // excuse: just for brevity
typedef ... POWC; // What's the underlying type of this thing?
typedef map<POWC, float> PowcFloat;
typedef map<int, PF> YearPowcFloat;
typedef map<string, YearPowcFloat> Jumbo;

void load(const vector<string>& states, const vector<int>& years, const vector<POWC>& powcs, Jumbo& big)
 BOOST_FOREACH(const string& state, states)
  YearPowcFloat ypf;
  BOOST_FOREACH(int year, years)
   PowcFloat pf;
   for(size_t i=0; i<40; ++i)
    pair<POWC,float> ppf = ...; // populate ppf with each float from file

void test_load()
 vector<string> states;
 states.push_back("New York");
 vector<int> years;
 vector<POWC> powcs(40); // ...

 Jumbo big;
 load(states, years, powcs, big);
 cout<<"New York 2010 powcs[0] = "<< big["NewYork"][2010][powcs[0]] << endl;

Subject: [Boost-users] boost C++ load data from file

Dear All,

I need to load data (24 X 28 X 40) from 24 X 28 files into a datastructure so that my program can use
them to do operations.

Each file has 40 data items, which are floating numbers.

I hope that the data structure can be indexed by item name not only by integer.

For example, for 24 states in USA, each state's power consumption is POWC in year Y.

I hope that the data structure indexing is like this


My question is :

(1) how to load the data from 24 x 28 files by boost C++?

It is boring to type file's name one by one in program.

Is there an alternative to load the data by indexing the file names ?

for example,

for (filename = name1; filename < filenum ; filename++)
load data from filename;
store loaded data in the datastructure.

(2) how to index the item of the datastructure by boost C++ ?

Any help is appreciated.
