Why you should use Boost.MultiIndex (Part II)

by David Gross

From the article:

A few weeks ago, I posted the first part of this article, where I explained the advantages of Boost.MultiIndex over the standard containers when you need to have multiple views on a set of data.

In this second part, I would like to talk about the benefits you can get from using Boost.MultiIndex as a single-index hash table, as a replacement of std::unordered_map.

One interesting and powerful aspect of Boost.MultiIndex is that it allows you to add an index of type T, where T is different from the stored type. And it is more frequent and useful that you could think.
