Woohoo.. How many times have we seen code like this:
my $val = shift;
my $idx = 0;
$idx++ while $val >>=1;
I'd love to see a full compliment of bit-code like the 386 had (oh the
days). :) That includes get_index_of_left_most_bit (alias log2_i_i),
get_index_of_first_[one|zero] (which is useful for searching bitmaps).
count_ones. I'd have to go get my old 86 assembly book for the rest.
This is useful stuff people. :) Heck, on x86 platforms would could use
#ifdefs and assembly. :) Tell me this wouldn't be cool?
