STL hash<> function - where is the header?

STL has a hash function documented here: http://www.sgi.com/tech/stl/hash.html

What header do I include? I can't find it defined anywhere in the MSVC

I'm using MSVC8, BTW. Sorry if this is the wrong forum!

That page document's SGI's version of the Standard Template Library.

MSVC8 has an implementation of the C++ Standard Library. That's not the
same thing as STL. The C++ Standard Library doesn't have hashed
containers or a hash template.

TR1 (a recommendation, not a requirement) provides the hashed containers
unordered_set, unordered_multi set, unordered_map, and
unordered_multi map, as well as a hash template. The various hashed
containers are defined in <unordered_seta nd <unordered_map> , and the
hash template is in <functional>. If youve got an implementation of TR1
that's where you'll find them. (For more information about TR1, see my
book, "The Standard C++ Library Extensions. Hashed containers are in
Chapter 5.)

The current draft of the next revision of the C++ standard also has
these templates, but that won't be official for a few years yet.

MS's library does have various hash_* containers, but you'll have to ask
for information about them on a Microsoft forum, or look at the
documentation on Dinkumware's web site (www.dinkumware.com).

Thanks very much for this. Very much appreciated.

I'll take a look at boost. I'm sure it has a good one.

Or why I just did myArray = "Computers" but myArray.length is showing 0. What a hey? There is a new trend to treat arrays and hashes as they were some variations of the same thing.

Same thing g++ complains when using hash_map<>, but is happy with map<--I understand hahs_map is not standardized, but since the compiler didn't complain something like 'hash_map<not defined', I suppose it's supported and should behave well when I used it correctly. BUT it didn't. Here is my code snippet: class MyKey { public: virtual void foo() { return; }
