**MathMate**, Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 5:40pmCould you kindly explain what PPD stands for? I ran out of ideas.

For the hashing keys,the following site explains how each method works, and procedures written in C are available.

Shifting is not described in the above article, but I presume that it is the same way cache blocks are hashed, namely truncating the key by a number of bits.

Post again if you have problems or would like to confirm your answers.
