homestuck hot take: the array modus should have had the limitations of an actual array in memory

for example if you acquire an extra card for your sylladex, you must drop everything you're carrying in order to reallocate a larger array

I was just rereading that.

I want to say the I'd never accept the terrible implementations they use there.

I mean, jeez, even the memory matching modus was better than the real data structures.

@violet hello yes this is a hashtable fetch modus, but unlike all real hash tables it has no provision for hash collisions and will simply eject items if their hashes collide

also the hashes are single-digit integers
