BOOKS, Hashing Code and Algorithms. Are there any?


Are there any GOOD books out there strictly dedicated
to hashing?

Would there be any books which devote an extensive amount
of pages on hashing and hashing algorithms, WITH CODE?

Ideally, I'd like a book which comes with hashing source
code on a diskette or CD-ROM.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Actually volume 3 of Knuth is the one that discusses hashing.

Well - this is not a book dedicated to hashing, but...
A very good book on data structures in general is
      Leendert Ammeraal
      Program and Data Structures in C
      John Wiley and Sons, 1987, ISBN 0-471-91751-6
Covers all kinds of data structures (hash tables are
among those) with special focus given to their implementation
in C (i.e. not Pascal, C++, Java, ...). Contains well written and commented source code. Once you've read this you're spoiled for life (e.g.: How ugly this code in X looks - it only takes n lines
in C).

I am not sure if there is a disk for the first book, but the book is great. There is a disk for the second one, and it is really good.
