This is a collection of miscellaneous bit twiddling hacks ported to JavaScript, mostly taken from here:

Install

Via npm:

npm install bit-twiddle

Functions

sign(v)

Computes the sign of the integer v. Returns:

  • -1 if v < 0
  • 0 if v === 0
  • +1 if v > 0

abs(v)

Returns the absolute value of the integer v

min(x,y)

Computes the minimum of integers x and y

max(x,y)

Computes the maximum of integers x and y

isPow2(v)

Returns true if v is a power of 2, otherwise false.

log2(v)

Returns an integer approximation of the log-base 2 of v

log10(v)

Returns log base 10 of v.

popCount(v)

Counts the number of bits set in v

countTrailingZeros(v)

Counts the number of trailing zeros.

nextPow2(v)

Rounds v up to the next power of 2.

prevPow2(v)

Rounds v down to the previous power of 2.

parity(v)

Computes the parity of the bits in v.

reverse(v)

Reverses the bits of v.

interleave2(x,y)

Interleaves a pair of 16 bit integers. Useful for fast quadtree style indexing. (See wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z-order_curve )

deinterleave2(v, n)

Deinterleaves the bits of v, returns the nth part. If both x and y are 16 bit, then it is true that:

deinterleave2(interleave2(x,y), 0) === x
deinterleave2(interleave2(x,y), 1) === y

interleave3(x,y,z)

Interleaves a triple of 10 bit integers. Useful for fast octree indexing.

deinterleave3(v, n)

Same deal as deinterleave2, only for triples instead of pairs

nextCombination(x)

Returns next combination ordered colexicographically.
