Bit::Vector is a (stand-alone) C library and an object-oriented Perl module (with overloaded operators) which allows you to handle bit vectors, sets (of integers), "big integer arithmetic" (e.g. for cryptography), and boolean matrices (all of arbitrary size) very efficiently. The package also includes an object-oriented Perl module for accessing the C library from Perl (the library can also be used by itself, without Perl). Optionally, it features overloaded operators for maximum ease of use.
