Ok, it was the easiest way to use the third solution, because i have C Integers as values. But I see it's not the most efficient way. With the domain {0 .. 10^7) it takes a second to calculate the value. An yes,. i have only a few constraints of this type and so it's ok. Maybe I will try to use the "bool_bitand" suggestion of yours, would that be much faster? But then i have to split the Integers into bits first...
