Hacker's Delight is a software algorithm book by Henry S. Warren, Jr. and published by Addison-Wesley Professional. The first edition was released in 2002,[1] and the second in 2013.[2] It discusses a variety of programming algorithms for common tasks involving integer types, often with the aim of performing the minimum number of operations or replacing slow operations by faster ones (e.g., converting a divide by a constant into a multiply by another constant that gives the same result).[3]

The second edition has new chapters on cyclic redundancy code and other error-correcting codes. It also has a new appendix containing graphs of discrete functions.
