Subject: [Caml-list] Hashtbl.hash and Hashtbl.hash_param

 What kind of algorithm is used to compute the hash code of objects in
O'Caml ?

 Hashtbl.hash (List.map (fun x -> Random.int 100)
[1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10]);;
 always returns 0 (Hashtbl.hash_param has the same properties) which is
a poor result !

 What can I do if I don't know the size of the list in advance ?

 Cheers,

 Sebastien.
