std::basic_string
 
Defined in header <string>
template<> struct hash<std::string>;

template<> struct hash<std::wstring>;
template<> struct hash<std::u16string>;

template<> struct hash<std::u32string>;
(since C++11)

The template specializations of std::hash for the various string classes allow users to obtain hashes of strings.

Example

The following code shows one possible output of a hash function used on a string:

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <functional>
 
int main()
{
    std::string s = "Stand back! I've got jimmies!";
    std::hash<std::string> hash_fn;
 
    size_t hash = hash_fn(s);
 
    std::cout << hash << '\n';
}

Output:

325378910
