  ANSI Common Lisp   18 Hash Tables   18.2 Dictionary of Hash Tables

18.2.1 hash-table System Class

Class Precedence List:
hash-table, t

Hash tables provide a way of mapping any object (a key) to an associated object (a value).

See Also:
Section 18.1 Hash Table Concepts, Section Printing Other Objects

The intent is that this mapping be implemented by a hashing mechanism, such as that described in Section 6.4 "Hashing" of The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 3 (pp506-549). In spite of this intent, no conforming implementation is required to use any particular technique to implement the mapping.
