( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I need to break unsigned 32-bit values into 4 parts: (from the msb) 14-bits, 6-bits, 6-bits, 6-bits; (using perl rather than I::C or XS). That can be done as follows:

#! perl -slw use strict; my $n = 0x80061861; my $top14 = ( $n & 0xfffc0000 ) >> 18; my $nxt6 = ( $n & 0x0003f000 ) >> 12; my $mid6 = ( $n & 0x00000fc0 ) >> 6; my $bot6 = ( $n & 0x0000003f ); print "$n => $top14 : $nxt6 : $mid6 : $bot6"; __END__ C:\test>bit 2147883105 => 8193 : 33 : 33 : 33

But I need to do this millions of times, so I'm looking to see if there is a more efficient way? (I don't care if I get 4 separate variables or an array with 4 values.)

Note: This is for me; no one else. Elegance, readability and maintainability are simply not considerations here. Just speed.

Any suggestions?
