*type t*

The type of the hashtable keys.

*val equal* : **t -> t -> bool**

The equality predicate used to compare keys.

*val hash* : **t -> int**

A hashing function on keys. It must be such that if two keys are equal according to **equal** , then they have identical hash values as computed by **hash** . Examples: suitable ( **equal** , **hash** ) pairs for arbitrary key types include ( **(=)** , **Hashtbl.hash** ) for comparing objects by structure, ( **(fun x y −> compare x y = 0)** , **Hashtbl.hash** ) for comparing objects by structure and handling **Pervasives.nan** correctly, and ( **(==)** , **Hashtbl.hash** ) for comparing objects by addresses (e.g. for cyclic keys).
