Detailed Description

Map a string to an enumeration.

The purpose of this class is to simplify mapping a standard 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 {
  };	// must be 0, 1,..., n_opt - 1
  const char* MyOptStrings[n_opt] = {
  }; // parallels MyOptEnum
  StringToIntMap my_enum_map( "opt_map", n_opt, NyOptStrings );
  switch( (MyEnum)my_enum_map( "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 exception AlreadyExists# is throw. If a string that was not passed in the constructor if given to operator()( const std::string& str )# then the exception DoesNotExist# is thrown.

In the constructor, name# 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.
