Hash tables, are they really what we see?
I did some benchmark for perl hash vs in-memory SQLite several days ago. Number of records that you are interested seems similar with my case, have a look at this thread if you are interested in.
Hash lookup is fast. There are cases in-memory sqlite is better than hash.
Thank you for that nice reference. It was interesting to read your benchmark. If I got to a huge project like that one, I`ll most definitely ask for wisdom.
Wisdom is sometimes useful even if one is not involved in a huge project.
Non-existent; I don't have TV
Non-existent; my TV doesn't have/need a remote
Under my control; I watch alone
Under the control of whoever shouts loudest
Under the control of whoever gets it first
One of many, and the TV has a mind of its own
