Help with HashTable

I have to design a program that reads in an input file, stores the text from the .txt file into a hash table then when we type in info into the console it shows the data that's associated with it. As far as I have looked I have no clue how to create a hash table let alone read values into it. I don't even have code, any starting points would be awesome. Thanks in advance!
