How can I utilize classes with a person's inventory?

So let's say that there's a character with an inventory. You can also specify the amount of each item there is. We can do this with variables. int bread = 5; int gold = 10; But I also want to group these variables together for easy access. So a vector naturally comes to mind (a vector because we can add new items in the future). vector<int> Inventory { bread, gold }; This vector stores actual variables. But it seems to me that I can't change the value of `bread` or `gold` once set. So I have to come up with another solution. I was thinking maybe classes. With a class `Inventory`, I could create objects like `bread` and set a value to them. But this seems like too much work. I shouldn't have to create an entire new class, and then initialize objects just for some variables. Going back to using vectors, would references work? Are there any better ways?

introducing map object. map is a collection of key and value, it's like an array but instead of indexing by 0123 you can chose whatever you want! including string intrigued ? check out here and try it yourself http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/map/map/


I've heard about maps before but I really never used them. I'll be sure to cjekc that out, thanks!
