    multimap<char, int> mm;
    pair<const char, int>* p;
  
    // allocate an array of 5 elements
    // using mm's allocator:
    p = mm.get_allocator().allocate(5);
  
    // assign some values to array
    psize = sizeof(multimap<char, int>::value_type) * 5;
  
    cout << "The size of allocated array is "
         << psize << " bytes.\n";
  
    mm.get_allocator().deallocate(p, 5);
  
    return 0;
