Hash Tables

A hash table is an Lpp object that can efficiently map any Lpp object to any other Lpp object. Each hash table has a set of entries each which associates a particular key with a value. Entries can be created, removed, modified and found given the key. Since an optimal hash function and algorithm is used, finding the value is very fast even if there are many entries.
