I am really stuck with hash tables. I have a list of words that I need to put in a hash table and solve the collisions by using chaining.
Firstly, what I understand of htables is that it is basically an array and a method of preventing collisions (using chaining) means, that instead of putting the obj into the array I must create a linked list node. Is this right or am I off track totally.
Something else I am not too clear about....if dealing with strings, to be able to work out the position am I suppose to be changing the the whole string into ascii characters and then work out the location?
