buffer: strip high bits when converting to ascii
Consider the following example:


Before this commit, the contents of the buffer was used as-is and hence it
prints 'ú'.

Now, it prints 'C:'. Perhaps not much of an improvement but it conforms to what
the documentation says it does: strip off the high bits.

Fixes #4371.
buffer: speed up ascii character scanning
Speed up ASCII character scanning and conversion by 25% to 30% by scanning and
converting whole words instead of individual bytes.

wrong masks?

missed ~, nvm

what about ?

Left a comment. AllocateRawAsciiString and SeqAsciiString don't exist in v8 HEAD so they probably won't take the patch as-is.

Is still relevant?

isaacs commented Mar 8, 2013

Yes, it is. I'm running tests again now, about to push if everything is fine.

isaacs commented Mar 8, 2013

Landed on master. Thanks, @bnoordhuis!
