The Boost Multi-index Containers Library provides a class template named
multi_index_container which enables the construction of containers
maintaining one or more indices with different sorting and access semantics.
Indices provide interfaces similar to those of STL containers, making using them
familiar. The concept of multi-indexing over the same collection of elements is
borrowed from relational database terminology and allows for the specification of
complex data structures in the spirit of multiply indexed relational tables where
simple sets and maps are not enough.
Boost.MultiIndex features additional functionalities, like subobject searching,
range querying and in-place updating of elements, which make it a convenient replacement
set::multiset even when no multi-indexing
capabilities are needed.
