I know it is creep-ism, not something I like.


It would be good to include a few best-done-at-machine-level set operations.

include(set, x)
exclude(set, x)
in(set, x)
count(set)  (number of bits at 1)

Can donate the following as a starting point for Lua licence code, below
is from a prog where I needed that data size. Various PD bit count code
exists, an awkward functionality in high level.

static unsigned short *incl(unsigned short *set, unsigned bit){  *set |=
(1 << bit); return set;}

static unsigned short *excl(unsigned short *set, unsigned bit){  *set =
((*set)&(~(1 << bit))); return set;}

static unsigned short in(unsigned short set, unsigned bit){ return
(set&(1 << bit))!=0;}
