ffs32, ffs64, fls32, fls64 -- find first or last bit set
#include <sys/bitops.h> int ffs32(uint32_t n); int ffs64(uint64_t n); int fls32(uint32_t n); int fls64(uint64_t n);
The ffs32() and ffs64() functions find the first bit set in n and return the index of that bit. Conversely, the fls32() and fls64() functions find the last bit set in n, returning the index of the bit. The search always starts from the bit 1 (the least significant bit). If the argument n is zero, each function returns zero.
The described functions are implemented as static inline functions in the <sys/bitops.h> header. The standard C library includes a more portable ffs(3) for user applications.
In the following example f = 3 and l = 7: uint32_t n = 0x44; /* 01000100 */ int f, l; f = ffs32(n); l = fls32(n);
