    Lightbulb StringyHash - easy to use hash

    The latest thinBasic, 1.9.16.x, contains very powerful, low level hash implementation.
    Here is a wrapper, which offers the following improvements:
    • you can decide whether hash keys are case sensitive or not
    • automatic garbage collection (no need to worry about freeing the memory)

    You can download the unit from the attachement, to get idea about use, checkout this:
    Uses "Console"
    #INCLUDE "StringHash.tbasicu"
    Dim h As stringyHash(4, FALSE)
    h.SetKey("Name"   , "Darth")
    h.SetKey("Surname", "Vader")
    PrintL "Initial key count: " + h.CountKeys
    If h.hasKey("SurName") Then h.RemoveKey("SURNAME") ' -- Case insensivity allows this
    PrintL "Key count after removal of one: " + h.CountKeys
    PrintL h.GetKey("Name")
    Dim h2 As stringyHash
    PrintL "Key count of cloned hash: " + h2.CountKeys
    PrintL h2.GetKey("Name")

    More information about thinBasic implementation of Hash Tables:

    Hash Tables, or Associative Arrays, are very efficient and ultra fast data structures able to store key/data pairs. More infor at

    Their internal implementation is quite complex but their usage if very easy and straight.
    To create, store, retrieve, big amount of data you just need a double word variable store anywhere.
    Every key/data can store big amount of memory handled as simple dynamic strings.

    Examples can be found in thinBasic installation path at \thinBasic\SampleScripts\DataStructures\

    As usual Petr find more advanced ways to use thinBasic power
