Thanks for any advice anyone can offer me on my question

Is there's a hash table where defined shell functions are kept? If so, what is it called?

So basically I'm wondering where in a shell (BASH) functions are stored. I know I can use the declare command to view them, but I suspect there is a hash table for them... but I can't find any reference to a memory structure that specifically holds them.

If anyone could tell me I would be grateful.


Yes, it's a hash table. See the source.
