I am not sure, if this works as you expect... maybe the macros and wrappers generate a copy under the hood?

use Inline C; use strict; use warnings; my $x = "012\xf0ABC\x0f\x00\x01\xff"; print unpack("H*", $x ), "\n"; # 303132f04142430f0001ff flipbits( $x, length $x ); print unpack("H*", $x ), "\n"; # cfcecd0fbebdbcf0fffe00 __END__ __C__ void flipbits(char* a, int len ) { for ( ; len-- ; ++a ) *a ^= 0xff; }

Update: Switching to 32bit blocks gave a huge improvement on my 32bit setup...

void flipbits32(char* a, int len ) { int blocks = len >> 2; if ( sizeof blocks == 4 ) { /* try 32bit blocks */ for ( ; blocks-- ; a += 4 ) *( (unsigned int*) a ) ^= 0xffffffffU +; /* TODO: add treatment for last 1..3 bytes if len is not a multipl +e of 4 */ } else { /* fallback to 8bit */ for ( ; len-- ; ++a ) *a ^= 0xff; } }
Benchmark:
Rate str inline inline32 str 69.1/s -- -37% -69% flipbits 110/s 59% -- -51% flipbits32 223/s 222% 103% --

Potential next steps which are also less general, but that's the price to pay:
