These functions operate on the 2’s complement binary representation of an exact integer.

Returns the bit-wise logical inverse of the argument. More formally, returns the exact integer whose two’s complement representation is the one’s complement of the two’s complement representation of

.`i`

These procedures return the exact integer that is the bit-wise “and”, “inclusive or”, or “exclusive or” of the two’s complement representations of their arguments. If they are passed only one argument, they return that argument. If they are passed no arguments, they return the integer that acts as identity for the operation: -1, 0, or 0, respectively.

Procedure: `bitwise-if`

`i1`

`i2`

`i3`

Returns the exact integer that is the bit-wise “if” of the twos complement representations of its arguments, i.e. for each bit, if it is 1 in i1, the corresponding bit in i2 becomes the value of the corresponding bit in the result, and if it is 0, the corresponding bit in i3 becomes the corresponding bit in the value of the result. This is equivaent to the following computation:

(bitwise-ior (bitwise-and i1 i2) (bitwise-and (bitwise-not i1) i3))

Procedure: `bitwise-bit-count`

`i`

If ei is non-negative, returns the number of 1 bits in the twos complement representation of i. Otherwise it returns the result of the following computation:

(bitwise-not (bitwise-bit-count (bitwise-not i)))

Returns the number of bits needed to represent i if it is positive, and the number of bits needed to represent

`(bitwise-not`

if it is negative, which is the exact integer that is the result of the following computation:)`i`

(do ((result 0 (+ result 1)) (bits (if (negative? i) (bitwise-not i) ei) (bitwise-arithmetic-shift bits -1))) ((zero? bits) result))This is the number of bits needed to represent

in an unsigned field.`i`

Procedure: `bitwise-first-bit-set`

`i`

Returns the index of the least significant 1 bit in the twos complement representation of i. If ei is 0, then - 1 is returned.

(bitwise-first-bit-set 0) ⇒ -1 (bitwise-first-bit-set 1) ⇒ 0 (bitwise-first-bit-set -4) ⇒ 2

Procedure: `bitwise-bit-set?`

`i1`

`i2`

Returns

`#t`

if the i2’th bit (wheremust be non-negative) is 1 in the two’s complement representation of`i2`

, and`i1`

`#f`

otherwise. This is the result of the following computation:(not (zero? (bitwise-and (bitwise-arithmetic-shift-left 1 i2) i1)))

Procedure: `bitwise-copy-bit`

`bitno`

`replacement-bit`

must be non-negative, and`bitno`

must be either 0 or 1. This is the result of the following computation:`replacement-bit`

from position 0 (inclusive) to position`from`

-`end`

(exclusive). Both`start`

and`start`

must be non-negative, and`start`

must be less than or equal to`start`

.`start`

This is the result of the following computation:

(let* ((mask1 (bitwise-arithmetic-shift-left -1 start)) (mask2 (bitwise-not (bitwise-arithmetic-shift-left -1 end))) (mask (bitwise-and mask1 mask2))) (bitwise-if mask (bitwise-arithmetic-shift-left from start) to))

.`op`
