A new release of gperf, 3.0.4-2, has been uploaded and will soon reach a
mirror near you; leaving the previous version at 3.0.4-1 for 64-bit, and
3.0.3-1 for 32-bit.
This represents a minor refresh rebuild by a new maintainer, to get a
consistent version between 32-bit and 64-bit. For more details on the
upstream changes, see the documentation in
Gperf is a perfect hash function generator written in C++. Simply
stated, a perfect hash function is a hash function and a data structure
that allows recognition of a key word in a set of words using exactly
one probe into the data structure.
