I'm not sure where you got this reference, but look-up table is a generic term describing something that can return one value fromm another. Example: State Code New Jersey NJ New York NY From this table, one can look-up the state name from the code or look the code up from the state name. Now, there are many ways and means to do this. One can use and array, vector, hashtable, properties file, etc to achieve this functionality. Why do you want one with complicated features?
