       hashkit_create, hashkit_clone, hashkit_free, hashkit_is_allocated -
       Create and destroy hashkit objects


       C Library for hashing algorithms (libhashkit, -lhashkit)


         #include <libhashkit/hashkit.h>

         hashkit_st *hashkit_create(hashkit_st *hash);

         hashkit_st *hashkit_clone(hashkit_st *destination, const hashkit_st *ptr);

         void hashkit_free(hashkit_st *hash);

         bool hashkit_is_allocated(const hashkit_st *hash);


       The hashkit_create() function initializes a hashkit object for use. If
       you pass a NULL argument for hash, then the memory for the object is
       allocated. If you specify a pre-allocated piece of memory, that is
       initialized for use.

       The hashkit_clone() function initializes a hashkit object much like
       hashkit_create(), but instead of using default settings it will use the
       settings of the ptr hashkit object.

       The hashkit_free() frees any resources being consumed by the hashkit
       objects that were initialized with hashkit_create() or hashkit_clone().

       The hashkit_is_allocated() reports where the memory was allocated for a
       hashkit object.


       hashkit_create() and hashkit_clone() will return NULL on failure or
       non-NULL on success.

       hashkit_is_allocated() returns true if the memory for the hashkit
       object was allocated inside of hashkit_create() or hashkit_clone(),
       otherwise it is false and was user-supplied memory.
