G'day BrowserUk,

I tried this a few different ways. Shifting first then just ANDing the six bits seems to be faster than ANDing then shifting. About half of the time seemed to be taken with the assignments, so if you can avoid some or all of those you get additional improvements. Here's the various tests:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use 5.010; use strict; use warnings; use Benchmark qw{cmpthese :hireswallclock}; my $n = 0x80061861; say "and_rshift: $n => ", join(' : ', and_rshift()); say "lshift_rshift: $n => ", join(' : ', lshift_rshift()); say "mixed: $n => ", join(' : ', mixed()); say "mixed_assign: $n => ", join(' : ', mixed_assign()); say "just_shift: $n => ", join(' : ', just_shift()); cmpthese(-10, { and_rshift => \&and_rshift, lshift_rshift => \&lshift_rshift, mixed => \&mixed, mixed_assign => \&mixed_assign, just_shift => \&just_shift, }); sub and_rshift { my $top14 = ( $n & 0xfffc0000 ) >> 18; my $nxt6 = ( $n & 0x0003f000 ) >> 12; my $mid6 = ( $n & 0x00000fc0 ) >> 6; my $bot6 = ( $n & 0x0000003f ); return ($top14, $nxt6, $mid6, $bot6); } sub lshift_rshift { my $top14 = $n >> 18; my $nxt6 = $n << 46 >> 58; my $mid6 = $n << 52 >> 58; my $bot6 = $n << 58 >> 58; return ($top14, $nxt6, $mid6, $bot6); } sub mixed { return ($n >> 18, $n >> 12 & 0x3f, $n >> 6 & 0x3f, $n & 0x3f); } sub mixed_assign { my $top14 = $n >> 18; my $nxt6 = $n >> 12 & 0x3f; my $mid6 = $n >> 6 & 0x3f; my $bot6 = $n & 0x3f; return ($top14, $nxt6, $mid6, $bot6); } sub just_shift { return ($n >> 18, $n << 46 >> 58, $n << 52 >> 58, $n << 58 >> 58); }

Output:
