// Boost.Bimap Example
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// This example shows how to construct a bidirectional map with
// multi_index_container.
// By a bidirectional map we mean a container of elements of
// std::pair<const FromType,const ToType> such that no two elements exists with
// the same first or second value (std::map only guarantees uniqueness of the
// first member).
// Fast lookup is provided for both keys. The program features a tiny
// Spanish-English dictionary with online query of words in both languages.
