At work I have some Python code to decode AIS messages, for which I
created my own code for handling binary data. It works, but is pretty
slow. Not surprising, since handling data at the bit level is not
exactly Python's strength. If I find the time, I'll try to replace my
code with your bitstream and see if it does what I need it to do, and if
it's any faster.
If/when I actually get around to it, I'll keep you informed.
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge
faster than society gathers wisdom.
