Hi, i have an assignment that involves me making a hash table which stores strings. I am struggling to find a good example of a hash table anywhere and would be greatful if someone could give me an idea of the basic code or even pseudocode for it.
initialise the table
display the table
and insert to it
my data type is
[B]type[/B] HTable = array [0 .. tableSize-1] of integer;
firstly- should it say string instead of integer?
my initialise procedure basically runs through the array assigning giving each item the value 0
[B]procedure[/B] initialise(var h: HTable); [B]var[/B] i:integer; [B]begin[/B] i:=0 ; [B]for[/B] i := 0 to tableSize-1 [B]do[/B] h[i]:= 0 ; [B]end[/B];
is this correct and again should i be assigning everything a blank char ' ' ?
My display procedure is similar but it write to the screen
[B]procedure[/B] display (h: HTable; filename: string); [B]var[/B] i:integer; [B]begin[/B] i:=0 ; [B]for[/B] i := 0 to tableSize-1 [B]do[/B] [B]begin[/B] WriteLn ('#',i,': ',h[i]) ; [B]End[/B]; [B]end[/B];
this is how i have started and my program compiles but when i choose to display the list nothing at all happens, i have done something terribly wrong here?
