NAME

Bencher::Scenario::BitManipulation::Set - Benchmark setting bits

VERSION

This document describes version 0.001 of Bencher::Scenario::BitManipulation::Set (from Perl distribution Bencher-Scenarios-BitManipulation), released on 2017-01-26.

SYNOPSIS

To run benchmark with default option:

 % bencher -m BitManipulation::Set

To run module startup overhead benchmark:

 % bencher --module-startup -m BitManipulation::Set

For more options (dump scenario, list/include/exclude/add participants, list/include/exclude/add datasets, etc), see bencher or run bencher --help.

DESCRIPTION

Packaging a benchmark script as a Bencher scenario makes it convenient to include/exclude/add participants/datasets (either via CLI or Perl code), send the result to a central repository, among others . See Bencher and bencher (CLI) for more details.

BENCHMARKED MODULES

Version numbers shown below are the versions used when running the sample benchmark.

Bit::Manip 1.01

Bit::Manip::PP 1.00

BENCHMARK NOTES

Differences between vec() and Bit::Manip routines:

  • vec() counts bit position from left, while Bit::Manip from right

  • vec() works with binary data, while Bit::Manip expects numbers

  • Bit::Manip currently supports only 32-bit number while vec() far more than that

  • Bit::Manip provides convenience functions for toggling, masking, shifting, and bit counting

  • vec() provides convenience when setting multiple bits in one go
