GPERF(1)GPERF(1)NAMEgperf - generate a perfect hash function from a key set
SYNOPSISgperf [ -adghijklnoprsStv ] [ keyfile ]
DESCRIPTIONgperf reads a set of ``keys'' from keyfile (or, by default, from the
standard input) and attempts to find a non-minimal perfect hashing
function that recognizes a member of the key set in constant, i.e.,
O(1), time. If such a function is found the program generates a pair
of C source code routines that perform the hashing and table lookup.
All generated code is directed to the standard output.
