Question about BOOST_FOREACH

Suppose I have a std::vector of double called myVec, and a std::map of type <int, double> called myMap. Why is it that the following works

BOOST_FOREACH(double x, myVec) x = 10.0;

Open in new window

and the following gives an error
BOOST_FOREACH(pair<int,double> y, myMap) 
cout << y.first << "\t" << y.second << endl;

Open in new window

so that I need to use

pair<int,double> y;
BOOST_FOREACH(y, myMap) cout << y.first << "\t" << y.second << endl;

Open in new window

instead?

It's the comma in the expression
pair<int, double>
The C Preprocessor is not type aware.

Write it like this and you're good to go
typedef std::map<int, double>::value_type map_value_type;

BOOST_FOREACH(map_value_type y, myMap) 
    std::cout << y.first << "\t" << y.second << std::endl;

Open in new window
