We will explain in more details what hashing and hash- tables mean. C Program To Implement Dictionary Using Hashing. Implement a T9 dictionary using C.
@Hardell Make sure your hashtable is big enough. A hashtable is expected to have plenty collisions if it is filled by more than 70-80%!
If you want to add 100 words, the hashtable should at least have a size of 130 to 140, bigger is better (e.g. If you use modulo (%) to crop the hash to the hashtable size, as you do, there is no need for a power of 2 size. Power of 2 sizes are only needed if you want to use AND ( &) to crop the hash, as AND is several times faster than modulo. – Jan 19 '13 at 19:40 •.

Even the best hashtable implementations written by the greatest expert in the world do have plenty of collisions when being filled with real life data.
This is absolutely unavoidable. And having only two to four collisions per index is a great value, I don't understand why you complain about that. It's rather how you deal with collisions than how you avoid them. See comments on collisions I added to my answer. – Jan 20 '13 at 22:33. Narcissu Visual Novel Free Download. Firstly, I create a hash table with the size of a prime number which is the closes to the number of the words I have to store, and then I use a hash function to find an address for each word. Return (hashAddress%hashTableSize); Since the number of different hashes is comparable to the number of words you cannot expect to have much lower collisions.
I made a simple statistical test with a random hash (which is the best you could achieve) and found that 26% is the limiting collision rate if you have #words == #different hashes. Desert Punk Episode 23 English Dubbed.
