Data::BitStream::String - A String implementation of Data::BitStream
use Data::BitStream::String; my $stream = Data::BitStream::String->new; $stream->put_gamma($_) for (1 .. 20); $stream->rewind_for_read; my @values = $stream->get_gamma(-1);
An implementation of Data::BitStream. See the documentation for that module for many more examples, and Data::BitStream::Base for the API. This document only describes the unique features of this implementation, which is of limited value to people purely using Data::BitStream.
This implementation is very memory inefficient, as it uses a binary string to hold the data, hence uses one byte internally per bit of data. However it is a useful reference implementation, and since most operations use Perl operations it is quite fast.
A private string holding the data in binary string form.
Retrieves a reference to the private string.
Sets the private string to the empty string
These methods have custom implementations.
The following roles are included. Note that Gamma has an inline implementation.
