Most optimal C/C++ solution on modern processors

  • 0

    The most optimal solution on modern processors would use only one hardware instruction (popcnt). The following works on GCC/G++, and resolves to an optimized bitwise version if a hardware popcnt is not supported:

    int hammingWeight(uint32_t n) {
        return __builtin_popcount(n);
