Description

The Animal site has a number of hashing walkthroughs, including quadratic and linear probing examples. Shows how a fixed set of elements is entered into a Hashtable using the probing method. Also gives pseudo code description and number of accesses for each inserted element.

Evaluation

Reasonably clear, though the computation for where a record goes when there is a collision is a bit hard to follow.

Usage Notes

For detailed instructions on how to install Animal and run Animal AVs, see: http://www.algoanim.info/Animal2/?q=node/290. Once you have installed the Animal .jar file and downloaded/unpacked the .zip file of Animal animations, you are now ready to run Animal. Run the .jar file to start Animal. Then go to the "Open" menu item, and browse to where you put the animal animations you got in the .zip file. Pick this AV from the list. You can then step through the animation, or use "kiosk mode" to have the steps fed to you at a constant pace.
