Boost.MultiIndex Reference


Header dependencies

The following dependencies among headers of Boost.MultiIndex hold:

So, a program using Boost.MultiIndex must include "boost/multi_index_container.hpp", the headers defining the index types to be used and possibly one or more key extraction headers for key-based indices. Note that all the key extractors provided by Boost.MultiIndex are automatically included with "boost/multi_index/key_extractors.hpp".

In order to use the serialization capabilities of Boost.MultiIndex, the appropriate Boost.Serialization library module must be linked. Other than that, Boost.MultiIndex is a header-only library, requiring no additional object modules.
