How can I have an object delete itself after X seconds?

P: 1
I'm trying to write a DNS server and I need the IP/name mappings to delete themselves after a given number of seconds. How can I accomplish that?

Thank you

For waiting x seconds, you can use functions in ctime (time.h in C). For deleting, it depends how your mappings are stored. E.g. if you're using an STL map, then use the erase() method to delete elements.
