comment I'm trying to understand hash tables - can someone explain it to me - clearly?
@PHI I think I understand what you're asking a little more. Hash tables are a general-use data structure, so it is likely that a lot of operating systems use them internally for storing data, although not necessarily integers themselves. It sounds like you may want to read up more on Operating Systems, Computer Architecture (including Instruction Set Architectures), and maybe the memory layout of a C program.

@PHIfounder I'm not sure if I understood your question completely, but the hash function that is performed on the key is designed to be generic, not just to apply to a specific data type such as integers. If we're talking about C code, the hash table could be designed to accept (void *) for the key and value and do a hash calculation on the key's pointer value.

comment Pros and cons of low-level vs high-level software development careers
+1 for trying both. I've found that after doing lots of low-level stuff for some years, it's getting harder to get considered for higher-level applications positions!
