Detailed Description

Map a std::string to an enumeration.

The purpose of this class is to simplify mapping a standard std::string to an integer which can be interpreted as an enumeration.

Here is an example of its use.

  const int n_opt = 3;
  enum MyOptEnum {
  };  // NOTE: Must be 0, 1,..., n_opt - 1
  const char* MyOptStrings[n_opt] = {
  }; // NOTE: parallels enums in MyOptEnum
  StringToIntMap my_enum_map( "opt_map", n_opt, NyOptStrings );
  switch( my_enum_map.get<MyOptEnum>("OPT_ONE") ) {
    case OPT_ONE:
      // do stuff
    case OPT_TWO:
      // do stuff
    case OPT_THREE:
      // do stuff
      // ???


The number of strings passed to the constructor must equal the number of options in the enumeration. If there are duplicate strings (capitalization concidered) then the std::exception AlreadyExists is throw. If a std::string that was not passed in the constructor if given to operator()( const std::string& str ) then the std::exception DoesNotExist is thrown.

In the constructor, defaultGroupName is used in error messages in the exceptions thrown to help make since out of the message.

The default constructor is not defined and not to be called.
