Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-460) hashCode improvements
Date Fri, 23 Dec 2005 16:29:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-460?page=comments#action_12361200 ] 

Yonik Seeley commented on LUCENE-460:
-------------------------------------

Some people have asked where some of the magic constants come from in the hashCodes:

> python -c "import random;print hex(random.getrandbits(32))[:-1]"
> Just a way of making some things unique.... let me know if you have a
> better idea on that.
> 
> So those constants are just random numbers.  I thought about trying to pick magic numbers
to maximize hamming distances, etc,
> but it's more work and more likely to mess things up if you get it wrong.  getClass().hashCode()
would also work, but it would be 
> slower.
