A hashtable is just an associative array, where instead of indexing objects by numerical indices, you index them using other objects. It''s stored as a big table with two columns for name and value. Pick up any book on data structures and you''ll find what you''re looking for.

i''d recommend mith''s "data structures for game programmers" since he has a documented obsession with hash tables.
