BitList

An implementation of a bit array (also known as bit vector, bit mask or bit set), which allows the set to grow or shrink as necessary, and allows inserting or removing values from arbitrary positions in the list.

Install

npm install bitlist

Usage

var BitList = require('bitlist');
var list = new BitList();
 
list.insert(0, true);
list.insert(1, false);
list.insert(0, false);
list.insert(2, true);
// list is now [false, true, false, true]
 
list.get(0); // false
list.get(1); // true
 
list.remove(0);
// list is now [true, false, true]
 
list.size; // 3
 
// lists can be instantiated with an array of values
var otherList = new BitList([false, true, true]);
 
// AND otherList onto list
list.applyAnd([otherList]);
// list is now [false, false, true]

  • set(index, value)

    • Update the value at the given index.
  • insert(index, value)

    • Insert a new value into the list at the given position.
  • remove(index)

    • Remove a value from the list.
  • applyAnd(lists)

    • Apply one or more other BitLists to the current one, using AND operations (treats each as a mask).
  • clearRange(lowIndex, highIndex)

    • Set a range of values to false. Indexes are inclusive.
  • clone()

    • Create a new BitList which has the same values as this one.
  • getIndexes(matchValue)

    • Turn the BitList into an array of indexes which have the given value.

        [1,0,1,1,0].getIndexes(false) -> [1, 4]
        [1,0,1,1,0].getIndexes(true)  -> [0, 2, 3]
      
  • countValuesInRange(value, lowIndex, highIndex)

    • Count the number of items in the given range which have the given value. Indexes are inclusive.
