//! A map is a kind of associative container that supports unique keys (contains at 
//! most one of each key value) and provides for fast retrieval of values of another 
//! type T based on the keys. The map class supports bidirectional iterators.
//! 
//! A map satisfies all of the requirements of a container and of a reversible 
//! container and of an associative container. For a 
//! map<Key,T> the key_type is Key and the value_type is std::pair<const Key,T>.
//!
//! Pred is the ordering function for Keys (e.g. <i>std::less<Key></i>).
//!
//! A is the allocator to allocate the value_types
//! (e.g. <i>allocator< std::pair<const Key, T> > </i>).
