In a reply to Netflix (or on handling large amounts of data efficiently in perl), I suggested that Judy::1/Judy1(3) was a sparse bit vector which might be interesting as a replacement for vec(). Perl's built-in vec can also be used as a bit vector but it's not sparse - all bits between the zeroth to the highest ever set are instantiated inside a perl string. This is only convenient if your bit vector isn't too big in ram.

Example code

A simple perl bit vector

use constant MEGABYTE => 2 ** 20; my $vector = ''; # 5,000 bits. Set every 100th bit between 15 million and 20 million. for ( 15_000_000 .. 20_000_000 ) { if ( ! ( $_ % 100 ) ) { vec( $vector, $_, 1 ) = 1; } } printf "%0.1fM\n", length( $vector ) / MEGABYTE;

A simple Judy::1 bit vector

use constant KILOBYTE => 2 ** 10; use Judy::1 qw( Set MemUsed ); my $vec; # 5,000 bits. Set every 100th bit between 15 million and 20 million. for ( 15_000_000 .. 20_000_000 ) { if ( ! ( $_ % 100 ) ) { Set( $judy, $_ ); } } printf "%0.1fK\n", MemUsed( $judy ) / KILOBYTE;
