Answer / lawrence

@Turk
your solution is O(n) not O(logn). your algorithm still
counts each zeros and ones.

Answer / sunny arora

/* This is a table which will contain number of ones
corrosponding to number value */
static int bits_in_char [256] ;

int bitcount (unsigned int n)
{
// works only for 32-bit ints

return bits_in_char [n & 0xffu]
+ bits_in_char [(n >> 8) & 0xffu]
+ bits_in_char [(n >> 16) & 0xffu]
+ bits_in_char [(n >> 24) & 0xffu] ;

Answer / turk

Here is an O(logn) solution

#include<stdio.h>

int numberOfOnesByte(unsigned char c, int length){
if (c==0)
return 0;
if (c==1)
return 1;
unsigned char left, right;
int lengthP = length/2;
left = c>>lengthP;
right = c-(left<<lengthP);
return numberOfOnesByte(left,length-lengthP)+numberOfOnesByte(right,lengthP);
}
int numberOfOnes(unsigned char *array, int start, int end, int length){
if(length==1){
return numberOfOnesByte(array[start],8);
} else {
int lengthP = length/2;
return numberOfOnes(array,start,start+lengthP-1,lengthP)+
numberOfOnes(array,start+lengthP,end,length-lengthP);
}
}
int main(){
unsigned char array[8] = {0xFF,0XAA,0xFF,0XAA,0xFF,0XAA,0xFF,0XAA};
printf("number of bits %d\n",numberOfOnes(array,0,7,8));
return 0;
}
