Gamma seldom used in practice

  • Machines have word boundaries – 8, 16, 32, 64 bits

    • Operations that cross word boundaries are slower

  • Compressing and manipulating at the granularity of bits can be slow

  • Variable byte encoding is aligned and thus potentially more efficient

  • Regardless of efficiency, variable byte is conceptually simpler at little additional space cost
