# The bitvec package

Another bit-array library for Haskell. This one defines a `Bit`

type (which is an instance of all the "expected" classes, including
numeric ones) and makes that type an instance of `Data.Vector.Unboxed.
Unbox`, so we get a lot of nice APIs for free. `Bool`

is already an
unboxable type, but the current unboxed `Vector`

implementation packs
each bit as a byte. This one packs 8 bits per byte, as expected
(`UArray`

from the `array`

package also uses one bit per `Bool`

).

In addition to the `Vector`

interface, there are several high-level
operations and some low-level ones suitable for building new bulk
operations by viewing the bit-vector as a word vector.
