Home * Programming * Bit-Twiddling

Bit-twiddling is a family of techniques used in manipulating integers in a non-obvious manner in order to obtain a result either more quickly or with less code. Bit-twiddling is often associated with bitboards, but there are both easy-to-read bitboard implementations and difficult-to-read implementations of other board representations.
