objectClass object;

std::vector <object> objectList;

map <name, objectClass *> objectMap


for (auto iter = objectList.begin(); iter < objectList.end(); iter++)
{

       // from the list to the objectMap

Yes, that would be correct way that keeps all 'misunderstandings' out and is on the safe side. Since the above snippet is full of typos, here's a complete one that you can use to verify that it compiles:

#include <vector>
#include <map>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

class objectClass
{
public:
    string name;
    int id;
};

void main ()
{
objectClass object;

std::vector <objectClass> objectList;

map <string, objectClass *> objectMap;


for (std::vector <objectClass>::iterator iter = objectList.begin(); iter < objectList.end(); iter++)
{
       // ??? how do I assign the object name and object pointer
       // from the list to the objectMap

      objectMap [(*iter).name] = &(*iter);  // Is this right?

} 

}
