Portable high-level bitwise manipulation algorithms version Travis build status code coverage Docs License

We do what we must because we can.

The algorithms:

  • have descriptive names to ease reading code that performs bit manipulations,
  • often optimize to perfect assembly code (and always on nightly by using the bitintr crate),
  • works on stable unstable only :( due to specialization for now.


extern crate bitwise;
use bitwise::word::*;

fn main() {
  let u = outer_perfect_shuffle(0b_1001_1111u8);
  let v = inner_perfect_shuffle(0b_1001_1111u8);
  let w = u.copy_bit(4u8, v, 3u8);
  assert_eq!(w.parallel_bits_deposit(u), 0b_1001_0011u8);

Supported compilers

The minimum required rustc version is >= 1.13.0.

Requires unstable for now.


Some algorithms like the Morton Z-Curve encoding/decoding routines switch implementation at compile-time depending on target features (like BMI2 support).
