    String Help

    Ok so I am writing a program that requires me to enter a long list of names and save it as a string. So my string contains a list of about 150 names. My question is how do I separate these names, one at a time to sort them. Im creating a binary tree sorter, i want to have the program read one name then create a new node for it then add another name and create a new node for that and so on. How do i go about doing this? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Your description is not clear.

    What do you mean by "long list of names"? The names are just one giant string? If so, what are the characters that tells you where one name starts and ends?

    Code:
    #include <map>
    #include <string>
    
    struct Node
    {  
       // whatever
    };
    
    typedef std::map<std::string, Node> StringToNodeMap;
    When you add a string to the map, it

    1) Sorts the name,
    2) Adds a node.

    Everything is done for you if you use the proper container class.
