[Saw your more recent follow-up saying you are in England so here's an
English persepective.]


In the 1980s I would have recommended Brunel University, Uxbridge but
then I'm biased as I did my MTech there. Prof F R A Hopgood did a huge
compilers module; based on his book Compiling Techniques. I've heard
recently that he has moved to be Associate Professor at Oxford-Brooks
University. Whether he is teaching the same compilers module I do not
know.


If Hopgood continues to teach this module then you'll at least come
out with the correct view that hash-tables based on the powers of 2
are better than Maurer's gospel that such tables can only ever be
absed on prime numbers.


Regards, Trevor
