I'm using Visual Studio 2005 to convert old Fortran code to C++.
I'm still pretty new to C++ and was a Web Developer specializing in
Coldfusion previously. Coldfusion doesn't worry about type, so arrays
I have some code that contains a list of 500 chemical fragments along with an associated value that needs to be accounted for if the specific fragment is found in a chemical. This list gets searched multiple times in the program. A specific fragment may be found in two places so I need to track the number of times each fragment is found.
In coldfusion I would set up an array named Fragments. This would consist of a FragID (int) Fragment (string) value (double) and NumFound (int). I know
C++ arrays need to be of the same type. I've looked at possibly using std::map and have been trying to think of alternative ways to handle this.
Does anyone have any advice or best practice regarding on how I should go about coding this?
