Boost Multi-Index : Composite key of vector and int for hashed indices


as I've just learned in <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1699704/boostmultiindexcontainer-with-randomaccess-and-orderedunique" rel="nofollow">in my other question</a>, I could use a composite_key for a struct, which has a std::vector and an integer. Now my question is: Can I use this somehow to work with hashed_indecies?

Here an example similar to <a href="http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_40_0/libs/multi_index/doc/tutorial/key_extraction.html#composite_keys_hash" rel="nofollow">THIS</a>:

struct unique_property { //the pair of int and std::vector<int> shall be unique int my_int; std::vector<int> my_vec; }; typedef multi_index_container< unique_property, indexed_by< hashed_unique< // indexed by my_int and every entry of my_vec composite_key< street_entry, member<unique_property,int,&unique_property::my_int>, member<unique_property,std::vector<int>,&unique_property::my_vec> > >, random_access< > > > property_locator;

The problem is (of course) that a std::vector<int> is no suitable hash-key. Can I put this code in an elegant wrapper (or something like that), to produce a hash-key from every entry of my_vec as well?


Use code snippet from your suggestion <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1699704/boostmultiindexcontainer-with-randomaccess-and-orderedunique/1700899#1700899" rel="nofollow">here</a>. It should work. I've added my comments there.


If you want vector to be hashable, you can just write a hash<vector<int> > function in namespace std, making it hash however you please (hint: you might be able to get away with hashing only the first few elements in some applications). This should make std::hash_set<vector<int> > work, and I think your more complex container as well.
