Hi, I usually write in C++, so I usually end up using one of the
Standard Template Library collection classes, like multimap. This is
usually implemented as a red-black or AVL tree, but the standard
interface doesn't specify implementation details. Of course, scoping
is a whole other matter. If that is a concern, I build a custom
symbol tree via child-sibling (and often parent) pointers, and then I
make each multimap the value of the declarator associated with it (for
example, in parsing C++, each class defines a multimap symbol table,
and so does each block, although you can't necessarily get to the
blocks by scope operator ::).
