Synopsis

#include <libhashkit-1.0/hashkit.h>

Compile and link with -lhashkit

typedef uint32_t (*hashkit_hash_fn)(const char *key, size_t key_length, void *context)
Parameters
  • key -- the key to generate a hash of
  • key_length -- the length of the key without any terminating zero byte
  • context -- the custom hash function context set through hashkit_set_custom_function() or hashkit_set_custom_distribution_function()
Returns

the custom hash function should return a hash value for key as an unsigned 32bit integer

enumerator HASHKIT_HASH_CUSTOM

Use custom hashkit_hash_fn function set through hashkit_set_custom_function() or hashkit_set_custom_distribution_function().

hashkit_return_t hashkit_set_function(hashkit_st *hash, hashkit_hash_algorithm_t hash_algorithm)
Parameters
  • hash -- pointer to an initialized hashkit_st struct
  • hash_algorithm -- valid hashkit_hash_algorithm_t constant
Returns

hashkit_return_t indicating success or failure

hashkit_return_t hashkit_set_custom_function(hashkit_st *hash, hashkit_hash_fn function, void *context)
Parameters
  • hash -- pointer to initialized hashkit_st struct
  • function -- hashkit_hash_fn function pointer to use as hash function for HASHKIT_HASH_CUSTOM
  • context -- pointer to an opaque user managed context for the custom hash function
Returns

hashkit_return_t indicating success or failure

hashkit_hash_algorithm_t hashkit_get_function(const hashkit_st *hash)
Parameters

hash -- pointer to an initialized hashkit_st struct

Returns

hashkit_hash_algorithm_t indicating the currently set hash algorithm to use

hashkit_return_t hashkit_set_distribution_function(hashkit_st *hash, hashkit_hash_algorithm_t hash_algorithm)
Parameters
  • hash -- pointer to an initialized hashkit_st struct
  • hash_algorithm -- valid hashkit_hash_algrothm_t constant
Returns

hashkit_return_t indicating success or failure

hashkit_return_t hashkit_set_custom_distribution_function(hashkit_st *hash, hashkit_hash_fn function, void *context)
Parameters
  • hash -- pointer to initialized hashkit_st struct
  • function -- hashkit_hash_fn function pointer to use as distribution hash function for HASHKIT_HASH_CUSTOM
  • context -- pointer to an opaque user managed context for the custom distribution hash function
hashkit_hash_algorithm_t hashkit_get_distribution_function(const hashkit_st *hash)
Parameters

hash -- pointer to an initialized hashkit_st struct

Returns

hashkit_hash_algorithm_t indicating the currently set distribution hash algorithm to use

Description

These functions are used to set and retrieve the key and distribution hash functions.

Return Value

hashkit_set_function(), hashkit_set_custom_function() and the distribution equivalents return hashkit_return_t::HASHKIT_SUCCESS on success.

hashkit_get_function() and hashkit_get_distribution_function() return hashkit_hash_algorithm_t indicating the hash function used.
