Bit-struct gem

Bit-struct is now a gem. It’s for accessing binary data in strings.

Thanks to several folks on this list, particularly Markus F., for
suggesting features.

Cool. I have a lambda in my (slightly languishing) DVI-file parsing
library with the comment:

Most of this proc is by Joel VanderWerf.

above it – a slightly mutated version of something from Bit-struct
:slight_smile: I can’t remember why I didn’t just use the Bit-struct version
directly, but there was something I needed to tweak. If I ever get
back to that project I’ll try to integrate more gracefully or at least
mention the gem.

Thanks! Drop me an email if the tweak looks like something that should
go in the library.

Thank you so much for this library – I use the hell out of it, and
now that it’s a gem it’s one less special-case in my install_deps rake
task!
