/**
 *  The {@code SequentialSearchST} class represents an (unordered)
 *  symbol table of generic key-value pairs.
 *  It supports the usual <em>put</em>, <em>get</em>, <em>contains</em>,
 *  <em>delete</em>, <em>size</em>, and <em>is-empty</em> methods.
 *  It also provides a <em>keys</em> method for iterating over all of the keys.
 *  A symbol table implements the <em>associative array</em> abstraction:
 *  when associating a value with a key that is already in the symbol table,
 *  the convention is to replace the old value with the new value.
 *  The class also uses the convention that values cannot be {@code null}. Setting the
 *  value associated with a key to {@code null} is equivalent to deleting the key
 *  from the symbol table.
 *  <p>
 *  This implementation uses a singly-linked list and sequential search.
 *  It relies on the {@code equals()} method to test whether two keys
 *  are equal. It does not call either the {@code compareTo()} or
 *  {@code hashCode()} method. 
 *  The <em>put</em> and <em>delete</em> operations take linear time; the
 *  <em>get</em> and <em>contains</em> operations takes linear time in the worst case.
 *  The <em>size</em>, and <em>is-empty</em> operations take constant time.
 *  Construction takes constant time.
 *  <p>
 *  For additional documentation, see <a href="http://algs4.cs.princeton.edu/31elementary">Section 3.1</a> of
 *  <i>Algorithms, 4th Edition</i> by Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne.
