bitwise: fast multi-dimensional unboxed bit packed Bool arrays

[ bit-vectors, bsd3, data, data-structures, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Unboxed multidimensional bit packed Bool arrays with fast aggregate operations based on lifting Bool operations to bitwise operations.

There are many other bit packed structures out there, but none met all of these requirements:

  1. unboxed bit packed Bool array,

  2. multi-dimensional indexing,

  3. fast (de)serialization, or interoperable with foreign code,

  4. fast aggregate operations (fold, map, zip).

Quick tour of the bitwise library:

Lift boolean operations on Bool to bitwise operations on Data.Bits.Bits.
Immutable bit arrays.
Mutable bit arrays in Control.Monad.ST.ST.
Mutable bit arrays in IO.
Portable bitmap monochrome 2D image format.

Very rough performance benchmarks:

Readme for bitwise-0.2

[back to package description]
Interactive interpreted usage without having installed first
requires adding a search path for the respective environment:

  hugs -98 -P:src:base21
  ghci-7.0.4 -isrc:base40
  ghci-7.4.1 -isrc:base45
  ghci-7.8.1 -isrc:base47

ghc < 7.6 has not been tested recently, reports welcome.
