Hash functions and tables are a bit confusing. I'm trying to understand how to store a string as a hashed value into an array with a max of 7 elements, and output which location the hash is stored as a string. So for example:
cout << value << " has been stored in " << location[length];
How would I get the program to output each location[length] as a unique string based on what the value is?
How would the program know which location to store a hashed value?
This is what I have come up with so far:
1 2 3
cout << "Enter name of person to add: ";
cin >> userInput;
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
int location; //represents the rides
void Hash(const string&); //hash function
void AddName(const string&); //adds a person to a queue
Hashing functions is something I would personally not try and reinvent the wheel due to their complexity.
PolarSSL provides the source code for all their implementations, I made a topic about a C++ wrapper for their SHA4 algorithm a while ago, perhaps it is of use to you: http://www.cplusplus.com/forum/general/98605/
