      I want a data structure that efficiently stores arbitrary strings
and allows fast lookup and deletion. By efficient storage i mean that
it should help remove redundant storage of strings by returning the
same key when two strings are similar. As u can guess this sounds the
recipe for a symbol table :) Any ideas??

[Sure sounds like a symbol table to me. See any compiler book for the
usual hash schemes to maintain one. -John]
