Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bit manipulation is the act of algorithmically manipulating bits or other pieces of data shorter than a word. Programming tasks that require bit manipulation include low-level device control, error detection and correction algorithms, encryption algorithms, and optimization. For most other tasks, modern programming languages allow the programmer to work directly with abstractions instead of bits that represent those abstractions. Source code that does bit manipulation makes use of the bitwise operations: AND, OR, XOR, NOT, and bit shifts. Bit manipulation, in some cases, can obviate or reduce the need to loop over a data structure and can give many-fold speed ups, as bit manipulations are processed in parallel, but the code can become rather more difficult to write and maintain.show more
