[back to package description]



This library defines a BitVector datatype that is parameterized by the vector width.

Additional features


We also provides a module called BitLayout, which is handy for defining mappings from smaller BitVectors into larger ones. This module is particularly useful when defining encodings in an instruction set.


To aid in building expression languages over BitVectors, we provide a module called App, which supports combining expressions over BitVectors using the BitVector operations and evaluating said expressions. It can be used in a pure context or in conjunction with a state monad. This module was inspired by the App type in macaw, Galois's binary analysis framework.
