I found myself wanting associative hash tables similar to those in Perl to manage my common entity data and I did not want to include all of jQuery with my distro, although that could change as I get more comfortable with jQuery.

That said, I put together a plugin for ImpactJS that gives me these functions is a concise object compatible with ImpactJS. Here is the source code for GitHub impact-pHash.

This Implementation was inspired by Mojavelinux, Inc.

Simply include the plugin as 'plugin.phash' and create a new pHash
var buckets = new pHash;

and an object will be created with the following functions:
this.set(key, value)

The key-value pair will be stored as
value = this.items[key]

There is also a

that tracks the size of the pHash.

Also, a standard JavaScript object can be included in the new call to populate the pHash on initialization.
var jsObj = { key1: val1, key2: val2, key3: val3 };
var buckets = new pHash(jsObj);

or just
var buckets = new pHash( { key1: val1, key2: val2, key3: val3 } );

This is currrently used in PiSpace to manage the entity vertices.

The PiSpace Source code is on GitHub

Thanks! I just posted the plugin on PointOfImpact, so hopefully others will find it useful too.
