Unlucky, I was to ask you how this 10_019 was computed. At least, this magic number is not a prime number, the nearest is 1009. If this can help, may be some goodies there : http://www.isthe.com/chongo/tech/comp/fnv/ http://eternallyconfuzzled.com/tuts/algorithms/jsw_tut_hashing.aspx -- No-no, this isn't an oops ...or I hope (TM) - Don't blame me... I'm just not lucky

That is good information for my own project, since several maps are used in it. Warren |
