Creating a Hash Table

Dear Friends,
I want to create a hash table using the standard Glib header (if possible) so that I can store a structure and keep the hash key(search key) based on a string.

Any example code would be great since I am not able to get the main idea.

best regards

Why not just use the dbm routines? They provides a way of managing data in the form of associative arrays/hash tables. Implementations include NDBM (the new DBM implementation), ODBM (the old implementation), and GDBM (the GNU implementation.)

Or consider using hsearch from search.h which is available on most systems.

I would do it with the STL

maybe a map<string,string> would do the trick.

I wrote one a while ago based loosely on the sample code in K&R. You're welcome to it.
