    \class QMap
    \inmodule QtCore
    \brief The QMap class is a template class that provides a red-black-tree-based dictionary.

    \ingroup tools
    \ingroup shared

    \reentrant

    QMap\<Key, T\> is one of Qt's generic \l{container classes}. It
    stores (key, value) pairs and provides fast lookup of the
    value associated with a key.

    QMap and QHash provide very similar functionality. The
    differences are:

    \list
    \li QHash provides faster lookups than QMap. (See \l{Algorithmic
       Complexity} for details.)
    \li When iterating over a QHash, the items are arbitrarily ordered.
       With QMap, the items are always sorted by key.
    \li The key type of a QHash must provide operator==() and a global
       qHash(Key) function. The key type of a QMap must provide
       operator<() specifying a total order.
    \endlist

    Here's an example QMap with QString keys and \c int values:
    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 0

    To insert a (key, value) pair into the map, you can use operator[]():

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 1

    This inserts the following three (key, value) pairs into the
    QMap: ("one", 1), ("three", 3), and ("seven", 7). Another way to
    insert items into the map is to use insert():

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 2

    To look up a value, use operator[]() or value():

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 3

    If there is no item with the specified key in the map, these
    functions return a \l{default-constructed value}.

    If you want to check whether the map contains a certain key, use
    contains():

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 4

    There is also a value() overload that uses its second argument as
    a default value if there is no item with the specified key:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 5

    In general, we recommend that you use contains() and value()
    rather than operator[]() for looking up a key in a map. The
    reason is that operator[]() silently inserts an item into the
    map if no item exists with the same key (unless the map is
    const). For example, the following code snippet will create 1000
    items in memory:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 6

    To avoid this problem, replace \c map[i] with \c map.value(i)
    in the code above.

    If you want to navigate through all the (key, value) pairs stored
    in a QMap, you can use an iterator. QMap provides both
    \l{Java-style iterators} (QMapIterator and QMutableMapIterator)
    and \l{STL-style iterators} (QMap::const_iterator and
    QMap::iterator). Here's how to iterate over a QMap<QString, int>
    using a Java-style iterator:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 7

    Here's the same code, but using an STL-style iterator this time:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 8

    The items are traversed in ascending key order.

    Normally, a QMap allows only one value per key. If you call
    insert() with a key that already exists in the QMap, the
    previous value will be erased. For example:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 9

    However, you can store multiple values per key by using
    insertMulti() instead of insert() (or using the convenience
    subclass QMultiMap). If you want to retrieve all the values for a
    single key, you can use values(const Key &key), which returns a
    QList<T>:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 10

    The items that share the same key are available from most
    recently to least recently inserted. Another approach is to call
    find() to get the STL-style iterator for the first item with a
    key and iterate from there:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 11

    If you only need to extract the values from a map (not the keys),
    you can also use \l{foreach}:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 12

    Items can be removed from the map in several ways. One way is to
    call remove(); this will remove any item with the given key.
    Another way is to use QMutableMapIterator::remove(). In addition,
    you can clear the entire map using clear().

    QMap's key and value data types must be \l{assignable data
    types}. This covers most data types you are likely to encounter,
    but the compiler won't let you, for example, store a QWidget as a
    value; instead, store a QWidget *. In addition, QMap's key type
    must provide operator<(). QMap uses it to keep its items sorted,
    and assumes that two keys \c x and \c y are equal if neither \c{x
    < y} nor \c{y < x} is true.

    Example:
    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 13

    In the example, we start by comparing the employees' names. If
    they're equal, we compare their dates of birth to break the tie.

/*! \class QMap::iterator
    \inmodule QtCore
    \brief The QMap::iterator class provides an STL-style non-const iterator for QMap and QMultiMap.

    QMap features both \l{STL-style iterators} and \l{Java-style
    iterators}. The STL-style iterators are more low-level and more
    cumbersome to use; on the other hand, they are slightly faster
    and, for developers who already know STL, have the advantage of
    familiarity.

    QMap\<Key, T\>::iterator allows you to iterate over a QMap (or
    QMultiMap) and to modify the value (but not the key) stored under
    a particular key. If you want to iterate over a const QMap, you
    should use QMap::const_iterator. It is generally good practice to
    use QMap::const_iterator on a non-const QMap as well, unless you
    need to change the QMap through the iterator. Const iterators are
    slightly faster, and can improve code readability.

    The default QMap::iterator constructor creates an uninitialized
    iterator. You must initialize it using a QMap function like
    QMap::begin(), QMap::end(), or QMap::find() before you can
    start iterating. Here's a typical loop that prints all the (key,
    value) pairs stored in a map:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 18

    Unlike QHash, which stores its items in an arbitrary order, QMap
    stores its items ordered by key. Items that share the same key
    (because they were inserted using QMap::insertMulti(), or due to a
    unite()) will appear consecutively, from the most recently to the
    least recently inserted value.

    Let's see a few examples of things we can do with a
    QMap::iterator that we cannot do with a QMap::const_iterator.
    Here's an example that increments every value stored in the QMap
    by 2:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 19

    Here's an example that removes all the items whose key is a
    string that starts with an underscore character:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 20

    The call to QMap::erase() removes the item pointed to by the
    iterator from the map, and returns an iterator to the next item.
    Here's another way of removing an item while iterating:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 21

    It might be tempting to write code like this:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 22

    However, this will potentially crash in \c{++i}, because \c i is
    a dangling iterator after the call to erase().

    Multiple iterators can be used on the same map. If you add items
    to the map, existing iterators will remain valid. If you remove
    items from the map, iterators that point to the removed items
    will become dangling iterators.

    \warning Iterators on implicitly shared containers do not work
    exactly like STL-iterators. You should avoid copying a container
    while iterators are active on that container. For more information,
    read \l{Implicit sharing iterator problem}.

    \brief The QMultiMap class is a convenience QMap subclass that provides multi-valued maps.

    \ingroup tools
    \ingroup shared

    \reentrant

    QMultiMap\<Key, T\> is one of Qt's generic \l{container classes}.
    It inherits QMap and extends it with a few convenience functions
    that make it more suitable than QMap for storing multi-valued
    maps. A multi-valued map is a map that allows multiple values
    with the same key; QMap normally doesn't allow that, unless you
    call QMap::insertMulti().

    Because QMultiMap inherits QMap, all of QMap's functionality also
    applies to QMultiMap. For example, you can use isEmpty() to test
    whether the map is empty, and you can traverse a QMultiMap using
    QMap's iterator classes (for example, QMapIterator). But in
    addition, it provides an insert() function that corresponds to
    QMap::insertMulti(), and a replace() function that corresponds to
    QMap::insert(). It also provides convenient operator+() and
    operator+=().

    Example:
    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 25

    Unlike QMap, QMultiMap provides no operator[]. Use value() or
    replace() if you want to access the most recently inserted item
    with a certain key.

    If you want to retrieve all the values for a single key, you can
    use values(const Key &key), which returns a QList<T>:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 26

    The items that share the same key are available from most
    recently to least recently inserted.

    If you prefer the STL-style iterators, you can call find() to get
    the iterator for the first item with a key and iterate from
    there:

    \snippet code/src_corelib_tools_qmap.cpp 27

    QMultiMap's key and value data types must be \l{assignable data
    types}. This covers most data types you are likely to encounter,
    but the compiler won't let you, for example, store a QWidget as a
    value; instead, store a QWidget *. In addition, QMultiMap's key type
    must provide operator<(). See the QMap documentation for details.
