A Map is actually an object, or instance, of a MATLAB® class
Map. It is also a handle object and, as
such, it behaves like any other MATLAB handle object. This section
gives a brief overview of the
Map class. For more
details, see the
containers.Map reference page.
All objects of the
Map class have three properties.
You cannot write directly to any of these properties; you can change
them only by means of the methods of the
|Unsigned 64-bit integer that represents the total number of
key/value pairs contained in the ||0|
|String that indicates the type of all keys contained in the |
|String that indicates the type of values contained in the |
To examine one of these properties, follow the name of the Map
object with a dot and then the property name. For example, to see
what type of keys are used in Map
A Map is a handle object. As such, if you make a copy of the object, MATLAB does not create a new Map; it creates a new handle for the existing Map that you specify. If you alter the Map's contents in reference to this new handle, MATLAB applies the changes you make to the original Map as well. You can, however, delete the new handle without affecting the original Map.
Map class implements the following methods.
Their use is explained in the later sections of this documentation
and also in the function reference pages.
