I'm not sure how this fares in reguard to speed, but it only uses 2-5 scalars, tries to avoid generating intermidiate lists, and modifies their arguments inplace.
sub shrink { my $dbit = 0; for (my $sbit = 0; $sbit < length($_[0]) * 8; $sbit++) { next if $sbit % 8 == 7; vec($_[0], $dbit++, 1) = vec($_[0], $sbit, 1); } my $dlen = length($_[0]) * 7 / 8; $dlen++ unless $dlen == int($dlen); $dlen = int($dlen); my $extra = length($_[0]) - $dlen; if ($extra > 0) { substr($_[0], $dlen, $extra, ''); } for (my $pbit = $dbit; $pbit < $dlen * 8; $pbit++) { vec($_[0], $pbit, 1) = 0; } } sub grow { my $sbit = int(length($_[0]) * 8 / 7) * 7 - 1; for (my $dbit = int(length($_[0]) * 8 / 7) * 8 - 1; $dbit >= 0; $d +bit--) { vec($_[0], $dbit, 1) = $dbit % 8 == 7 ? 0 : vec($_[0], $sbit-- +, 1); } }
I have the nagging fealing there is a better way to implement ceil (near the middle of shrink).
If padding the compressed string with 0 bits is not needed then the second for loop of shrink can be omitted to save (on average) 4 bits of time.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
