If using Linux, try 'man hsearch' for hash table, which is usable for
it. If you want multiple dictionaries(namespaces) I would advise to
first use hash table to convert strings to integers, and then(as
integer manipulations are much faster) use tsearch and friends(tree
dictionaries) with integer keys

Have fun :-)
