C++ Using STL Map Program

Hello Everyone!

In this tutorial, we will learn about the concept of Map in STL in the C++ programming language.

To understand the basic functionality of the Map Container in STL, we will recommend you to visit C++ STL Map, where we have explained this concept in detail from scratch.

For a better understanding of its implementation, refer to the well-commented C++ code given below.


#include <iostream>
#include <bits/stdc++.h>

using namespace std;

int main()
    cout << "\n\nWelcome to Studytonight :-)\n\n\n";
    cout << " =====  Program to demonstrate the working of a Ordered Map, in CPP  ===== \n\n\n\n";

    cout << "*** Each Element of a Map is a key value par. *** \n\n";

    //Map declaration (Map with key and value both as integers)
    map<int, int> m;

    //Filling the elements by using the insert() method.
    cout << "\n\nFilling the Map with key-value pairs of integers in random order."; //Map automatically stores them in increasing order of keys

    //make_pair() is used to insert a key value pair into the map
    m.insert(make_pair(3, 9));
    m.insert(make_pair(2, 4));
    m.insert(make_pair(5, 25));
    m.insert(make_pair(9, 81));
    m.insert(make_pair(1, 1));

    cout << "\n\nThe number of elements in the Map are: " << m.size();

    cout << "\n\nThe elements of the Map m are: ";

    map<int, int>::iterator i;

    for (i = m.begin(); i != m.end(); i++)
        cout << "\nSquare of " << i->first << " is " << i->second;

    //Initializing a map with the elements of another map

    map<int, int> m1(m.begin(), m.end());

    //Printing the copied map
    cout << "\n\nThe elements of the Map m1 are: ";

    for (i = m1.begin(); i != m1.end(); i++)
        cout << "\nSquare of " << i->first << " is " << i->second;

    cout << "\n\n\n";

    return 0;
