       int libtar_hash_add(libtar_hash_t *h, void *data);
       int libtar_hash_del(libtar_hash_t *h, libtar_hashptr_t *hp);

DESCRIPTION

       The libtar_hash_new() function creates a new hash with num buckets and using hash function
       pointed  to  by hashfunc.  If hashfunc is NULL, a default hash function designed for 7-bit
       ASCII strings is used.

       The libtar_hash_free() function deallocates all memory associated with the hash  structure
       h.   If freefunc is not NULL, it is called to free memory associated with each node in the
       hash.

       The libtar_hash_next() and libtar_hash_prev() functions are used to  iterate  through  the
       hash.   The libtar_hashptr_t structure has two fields: bucket, which indicates the current
       bucket in the hash, and node, which is a pointer  to  the  current  node  in  the  current
       bucket.   To  start  at  the  beginning  or  end of the hash, the caller should initialize
       hp.bucket to -1 and hp.node to NULL.

       The libtar_hash_search() function searches iteratively through the hash h until it finds a
       node whose contents match data using the matching function matchfunc.  Searching begins at
       the location pointed to by hp.

       The libtar_hash_getkey() function uses the hash function associated with  h  to  determine
       which  bucket  data  should be in, and searches only that bucket for a matching node using
       matchfunc.  Searching begins at the location pointed to by hp.

       The libtar_hash_add() function adds data into hash h.

       The libtar_hash_del() function removes the node referenced by hp.

RETURN VALUE

       The libtar_hash_new() function returns a pointer to the new hash  structure,  or  NULL  on
       error.

       The  libtar_hash_next()  and  libtar_hash_prev()  functions  return  1  when valid data is
       returned, and 0 at the end of the hash.

       The libtar_hash_getkey() and libtar_hash_search() functions  return  1  when  a  match  is
       found, or 0 otherwise.

       The libtar_hash_add() function returns 0 on success, or -1 on error (and sets errno).

       The libtar_hash_del() function returns 0 on success, or -1 on error (and sets errno).
