The Property class in YARP
Be warned that the Property class is not intended as a general map -- for that, I suggest you check the standard C++ template library "map" class (and efficient hashed implementations). If you use Java, these should be familiar from the Java Map interface.
Property is specialized for use with configuration files, command line options etc.
