Same question however let's simplify it.
I have wrote a chat server and i would like to store information on every user using a hashing table, so all i need to do is take a username (any characters) and hash it, seek to that record number, write out the record and get out...
so craig_capel username for example = 33233 so i seek to that record and write the data, the routine i have is ok, but i know for a fact it's not good for it's size, can anyone come up with a better method which does not use 1.2gig (my only limit is that the usernames HAVE to be <32 chars in length)
e: String): Integer;
Thanks People (P.S if any admin are reading, please delete that thread at the top so i can finally free it)
