ANSI Common Lisp 18 Hash Tables 18.2 Dictionary of Hash Tables
- Class Precedence List:
Hash tables provide a way of mapping any object (a key)
to an associated object (a value).

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.
