    Example 1:
    Code:
    int variable0 = 0; 
    int variable1 = 1;
    int variable2 = 2;
    int varabile3 = 3;
    
    int someArray[4] = {10, 20, 30, 40};
    
    //now i can access array indices like: 
    someArray[variable0];
    someArray[variable1];
    someArray[variable2];
    someArray[variable3]; 
    
    Now I would like to do something like example above on the runtime:

    Example 2:
    Code:
    void addVariableName(std::string name) 
    {
    //add variable name and assign following number to it starting from 0
    }
    
    addVariableName("variable0");
    addVariableName("variable1");
    addVariableName("variable2");
    addVariableName("variable3");
    
    someArray[/*????*/]; //want to access element 0 here using string "variable0"
    someArray[/*????*/]; //want to access element 1 here using string "variable1"
    someArray[/*????*/]; //want to access element 2 here using string "variable2"
    someArray[/*????*/]; //want to access element 3 here using string "variable3" 
    Is there any way to do it? (in the same time as in example 1)
