Hey there,

I'm writing a script that takes in two arrays. One array has a list of languages and the other has a greeting in that language.
I want to hash these two arrays together, using a randomly generated prime number used in the hashing. The problem is I really have no idea how to start this out right, can someone walk me through a sample of how hash functions are done?

Thanks.

Take a look at java.util.Arrays.deepHashCode() / java.util.Arrays.hashCode().
