The Bit::Vector code needs new_Dec, not new_Hex. Here are are some additions to your code showing Data::BitStream::XS and two alternatives using Bit::Vector. Neither are improvements over the fast simple methods, but they do show that both are at least reasonable solutions.
$start = time; my $stream = Data::BitStream::XS->new; # $stream->write(32, $n) for 1 .. $ITERS; # Below is faster $stream->put_raw(pack("N",$n) x $ITERS, 32*$ITERS); $stream->rewind_for_read; for (1 .. $ITERS ) { stuff($stream->read(14), $stream->read(6), $stream->read(6), $stream- +>read(6)); } printf " D::B::XS took: %.12f seconds\n", ( time() - $start ) / $ITE +RS; $start = time; for (1 .. $ITERS ) { my $vector = Bit::Vector->new_Dec(32, $n); stuff($vector->Chunk_Read(14, 18), $vector->Chunk_Read( 6, 12), $vector->Chunk_Read( 6, 6), $vector->Chunk_Read( 6, 0) ); } printf "Bit::Vector took: %.12f seconds\n", ( time() - $start ) / $ITE +RS; $start = time; my $vector = Bit::Vector->new(32*$ITERS); $vector->Word_List_Store(($n) x $ITERS); for (0 .. $ITERS-1 ) { stuff($vector->Chunk_Read(14, 32*$_+18), $vector->Chunk_Read( 6, 32*$_+12), $vector->Chunk_Read( 6, 32*$_+6), $vector->Chunk_Read( 6, 32*$_+0) ); } printf "Bit::Vector took: %.12f seconds\n", ( time() - $start ) / $ITE +RS;

It really depends on what the usage model is. Both Data::BitStream and Bit::Vector are going to suffer if you insist on making a new object for each word. They will do much better if you let them create a single object and fill it, then pull the data out in arbitrary sized chunks. If the OP had all the values in one chunk or array then this would be more appropriate.

One could also write a new coding role for Data::BitStream to handle retrieving the values using code similar to one of the lookup methods, but there would have to be some real reason to want a stream vs. just doing it using one of the lookup methods.
