    Hashtable

    Hi guys, I've a question which it requires "HASHTABLE" so just C++ and puthon and Java will find library that service HASHTABLE , my question can't I used a hashtable in C? isn't there's something like library or something in C to use HASHTABLE and not making it?

    Just because something doesn't exist in the standard library doesn't mean there aren't third party libraries available. Search the Web, search open source project repositories, etc.

    But I searched and found in C programming there's no already library for using hashtable!

    Really? You apparently didn't look very hard. A quick Google search for "C hashtable library" gives me 862,000 results. The third result is UTHash. Another result is What are the best open-source map/hash-table libraries for C?. Take your pick.

    Do they clearly lack the ability or inclination to ask the almighty Google?
