A lib for basic arithmetic with morton code.
If BMI2 instructions set is available on your processor (intel i5, i7 and some Xeon), mortonlib will use pext and pdep instructions to encode/decode morton code. Else, we rely on a precomputed look-up table. This last method is slower but works on all processors. You can set the flag USE_BMI2 to define which strategy you want to use.
If you don't have BMI2 instructions and you don't have to encode coordinates greater than (256,256,256), you can use the morton3d_256(x, y, z) function which is a bit faster than the generic one.
//Encode 2d morton code morton2 m0 = morton2(x, y); //Encode 3d morton code morton3 m1 = morton3(x, y, z); //if x, y and z < 256 and USE_BMI2 not set morton3 m2 = morton3d_256(x, y, z); //Decode 3d morton code int x, y, z; m1.decode(x, y, z);
Additions, substractions, increments
You can add and substract morton codes without decoding and re-encoding them.
//Add two morton keys morton3(0,0,0) + morton3(1,2,3) == morton3(1,2,3); //Substract two morton keys morton3(4,5,6) - morton3(1,2,3) == morton3(3,3,3);
If you want to increment or decrement a single coordinate, you can use inc() and dec() function, which are a little bit faster than generic add.
//Increment Y part of morton key morton3(4,5,6).incX() == morton3(4,5,6) + morton3(1,0,0) == morton3(5,5,6); //Decrement Y part of morton key morton3(4,5,6).decY() == morton3(4,5,6) - morton3(0,1,0) == morton3(4,4,6);
