      The perl code will produce the same hash for "abc.html" as for "bca.html"

Which underscores the point I made earlier about adding collision detection and rehashing logic to whatever algorithm you use. One workround I've seen:

| handwaving here... my @i = split(//,$url); # put each letter in it's own bin my $j=0; # Initailize our my $k=1; # hashing increment values my @m=(); # workspace foreach my $n(@i){ my $q=ord($n); # ASCII for character $k += $j; # Increment our hash offset $q += $k; # add our "old" value $j = $k; # store that. push @m,$q; # save the offsetted value } my $hashval=0; #initialize our hash value # Generate that map { $hashval = ($hashval + $_) % 10000} @m;
Using that method ABC.html and CBA.html now have different values because each letter position's value gets bumped up increasingly from left to right.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
