BitInformation.jl is a package for the analysis of bitwise information in Julia Arrays. Based on counting the occurrences of bits in floats (or generally any bittype) across various dimensions of an array, this package provides functions to calculate quantities like the bitwise real information content, the mutual information, the redundancy or preserved information between arrays.

BitInformation.jl also implements various rounding modes (round,shave,set_one, etc.) efficiently with bitwise operations. Furthermore, transormations like XOR-delta, bittranspose, or signed_exponent are implemented.

For an overview of the functionality and explanation see the documentation.


BitInformation.jl is registered in the Julia Registry, so just do

julia>] add BitInformation

where ] opens the package manager. The latest version is automatically installed.
