 r1186 A bitstream is simply a sequence of $0$s and $1$s, where there is one such bit in the bitstream for each character in a source data stream. For parsing, and other text processing tasks, we need to consider multiple properties of characters at different stages during the parsing process. A bitstream can be associated with each of these properties, and hence there will be multiple (parallel) bitstreams associated with a source data stream of characters.

The starting point for bitstream methods are \emph{basis} bitstreams
