Purge hash table.


purge-hash <hash>


purge-hash deletes all key/value pairs from <hash> table that was created with new-hash.

After purge-hash, the hash is empty and you can use it without calling new-hash again. Note however, that "average-reads" statistics (see get-hash) is not reset - it keeps being computed and remains for the life of the hash.


Create hash, put some data in it and then purge the data:

new-hash h size 100
write-hash h key "mykey" value "myvalue"
purge-hash h

See read-hash for more examples.
