2 dimensional map?

P: 99
so i know that a map is an associative array with key and entry pairs.

is there any way to create a map that works using two key values to find one entry?

I would imagine you could implement one with little effort.....
You just require two things to point to the same thing. This of course ruins a 1-1 relationship, so if you rely on finding the key given a particular entry, you can't. But I see no reason (provided that all keys are unique, of course) why you couldn't have two (or indeed more) keys reference the same value.
