If you haven't bought any of Knuth's fascicles yet, this is definitely
the one to get.
"The Art of Computer Programming: Volume 4
Bitwise Tricks & Techniques
Binary Decision Diagrams"
Donald E. Knuth
Describes basic "broadword" operations and an important class of data
structures that can make computer programs run dozens - even thousands
- of times faster.
I started a Haskell program using bitwise operations and then
discarded them thinking them to low level.
I think one of the dangers of Haskell, is that I get carried away with
medium and high level abstractions and think "everything" MUST be done
