An extremely light-weight, fast, and limited representation of a string of up to (2*WORDSIZE - 2) bits. In fact, there are two representations, misleadingly named bit queue builder and bit queue. The builder supports only
emptyQB, creating an empty builder, and
snocQB, enqueueing a bit. The bit queue builder is then turned into a bit queue using
buildQ, after which bits can be removed one by one using
unconsQ. If the size limit is exceeded, further operations will silently produce nonsense.
Create an empty bit queue builder. This is represented as a single guard bit in the most significant position.
Enqueue a bit. This works by shifting the queue right one bit, then setting the most significant bit as requested.
Convert a bit queue builder to a bit queue. This shifts in a new guard bit on the left, and shifts right until the old guard bit falls off.
Dequeue an element, or discover the queue is empty.
Convert a bit queue to a list of bits by unconsing. This is used to test that the queue functions properly.
