I need to store a short list of strings, arround 10 to 20, that will be searched several hundreds of thousands times and retrieve an integer value correspoding to that string value, it will be most likely its ordinal position.
I first tried a secuential search on a TArrayList that result too slow.
Then, I tried HashTable but still being too much slow for what I am doing.
Which other methods would be faster ?
Thanks in advance,
