public interface BoundedHashable
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Calculate a hash code for this object.
int boundedHash(int seed, int limit)
seed- The seed is an initial value, or the accumulated hash code from previous elements in a containing object. Using zero as the seed is fine.
limit- A limit on the number of sub-elements whose hash we should calculate. This guards against cycles. Any recursive calls should be done with a smaller value of limit, and no recursive calls must be done when the limit is zero.
