I have 2 input files a.txt & b.txt

contents of a.txt are
Auckland,1747564,-368536
Christchurch,1726460,-435233
fields are city,x,y

contents of b.txt are
1706,Auckland,Williams Avenue
1706,Auckland,Willow Way
1706,Auckland,Wyman Place
fields are poco,city,str

If city of a.txt is matching with city of b.txt,I want to write the o/p in a file as follows
Auckland,Williams Avenue,1747564,-368536,1706
Auckland,Willow Way,1747564,-368536,1706
Auckland,Wyman Place,1747564,-368536,1706

the coding is as follows

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>

        : x(x1),y(y1),org_n1(org_n2),pc(pc1),city_n(city_n1),cu(cu1),txt(txt1),org_cu(org_cu1),strt(strt1) {}

I want to do this program using multimap.Can anyone give me the coding??

This is how to use a multimap ...

#include <map>
using std::map;
using std::multimap;

// Using a map

map<string, string> my_map;
my_map["David"] = "Goliath";
my_map["Yoko Ono"] = "John Lennon";

//Using a multimap is a little more complicated

multimap<string, string> my_mm;
typedef std::multimap<string, string>::value_type val_type;
my_mm.insert(val_type("Yoko Ono", "John Lennon"));

can you give the full coding for above program?

Commented:
The policy in EE is not to do the programs for you, but to help you do it yourself and help you understand what you are doing.

Also for 20 points nobody is going to bother ... even not those who do not follow EE guidelines and policies.
Try to increase the point to 250 and pray.

Nevertheless, I and other EE experts will be more than happy to assist you in coding it yourself.
Try to do it and post here questions to the problems you encounter

Moreover, you have to decide how to treat multiple values ... we can only guess.

Good luck,
Mafalda.

in multimap if I use find..

 CityParms& cityParms  = cmap[city]; how to assign this?

CityParmsMap::const_iterator Citr = cmap.find(city);
        cout << "processing 10-14 cities " <<city << endl;
        if ( Citr != cmap.end())
        {
            CityParms& cityParms  = cmap[city];
            CityParms* pCityParms = new CityParms(cityParms.x, cityParms.y, cityParms.org_n1, poco,
                city, cityParms.cu, cityParms.txt, cityParms.org_cu, strt);
            carr.push_back(pCityParms);
            cout << pCityParms->city_n << pCityParms->strt<< cityParms.pc << "matched" << endl;
        }    
       
>> CityParms& cityParms  = cmap[city]; how to assign this?

As multimap may have more than one entry to a given key, there is no operator[] defined.

However, you may do this:

CityParmsMap::iterator Citr = cmap.find(city);
if (Citr != cmap.end())
{
    CityParms& cp = Citr->second;
    ....
}

You see, multimap is much less comfortable than map.

>> CityParmsMap::const_iterator Citr = cmap.find(city);

Also because of multiple keys you may not use a 'const_iterator' but an 'iterator' whrere you could iterate thru all entries having same key.

Look at last implementation

https://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Cplusplus/Q_20953562.html

to learn that multimap functionality hadn't actually used. We could have made the same using a vector<CityParms> or a list<CityParms> or even a normal map by using a different key - maybe x + y.
