This package contains an efficient implementation of little-endian, immutable bit vectors. It implements most applicable typeclasses and also conversions to and from signed or unsigned numbers.

For an implementation of big-endian, immutable bit vectors, use the bv package.

For an implementation of little-endian, mutable bit vectors, use the bitvec package.

Tests

The test suite ensures that all typeclass instances are "lawful" and that data-structure–specific functionality is well defined.

The TestSuite.hs file contains the specification. It can be run by invoking any of the following commands:

  • cabal new-test

  • cabal test

  • stack test

Benchmarks

The benchmarks provide an empyrical check for the asymptotic complexity of data structure operations and also provide easy metrics for detecting performance regressions.

The Benchmaks.hs file contains these metrics. It can be run by invoking any of the following commands:

  • cabal new-bench

  • cabal bench

  • stack bench
