x86 BMI-style bit manipulation routines


This library provides various bit manipulation routines not available in Rust std. Currently it is just a portable implementation of the x86 ABM, BMI 1/2, and TBM instruction sets but the API may expand in the future. The implementation will (eventually) take advantage of specialized hardware instructions available on the native platform.


See the API documentation here.


  1. Rust
  2. Cargo

You can install both with the following:

$ curl -s https://static.rust-lang.org/rustup.sh | sudo sh

See Installing Rust for further details.


$ cargo build       ## build library/binary
$ cargo run         ## run examples
$ cargo test        ## run tests
