    Lookup Table Reference???

    I am trying to find a reference on lookup tables.

    Ideally, we would us a switch statement to perform our operations in our program but we need to compare string variables that are 3 characters long. I read in a previous thread that lookup tables are an alternate method since a switch statement cannot use strings. Is this right and can anyone give a reference on lookup tables?????

    Thanks,
    Kendal

    Do you mean a hash table? Hash tables are simply a array structure where indices are acquired via hash functions.
