It can be used to perform some operation on hashing related algorithm like a hashtable, hashmap etc. An object can also be searched with its unique code (hashcode).
Parameters: This method accepts nothing.
Return value: This method returns the hash-code value for this path.
Below programs illustrate hashCode() method:
Hash Code: 1600751599
Hash Code: -996777206
