List of all members.

Detailed Description

The hash table class is the basis for implementing the PSet# and PDictionary# classes.

The hash table allows for very fast searches for an object based on a "hash function". This function yields an index into an array which is directly looked up to locate the object. When two key values have the same hash function value, then a linear search of a linked list is made to locate the object. Thus the efficiency of the hash table is highly dependent on the quality of the hash function for the data being used as keys.
