R-bitops – R CRAN package bitops – implementing bitwise operations


Bitwise operations on (the 32-bit) integers

Context and History

Probably the smallest CRAN R package I maintain, the package has a long history, originating as S / S-plus extensions by Steve Dutky.

I got involved for the first time around 2004, and later became maintainer as Steve had moved on, and other CRAN packages depended on bitops, see bitops on CRAN.
