# bit-twiddle

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

Via npm:

``````npm install bit-twiddle
``````

# API

### `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:

### `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.
