A bencode reader that doesn't use the heap (ie. malloc/free).
Written in C with a BSD license.
How does it work?
See bencode.h for documentation.
To see the module in action check out:
- Unit tests within test_bencode.c
If you've got the entire bencoded string in memory, CHeaplessBencodeReader is amazing - it'll do the job great!
Otherwise, if your best access is via a stream (eg. a massive bencoded string that you don't want in memory; or a TCP stream), then https://github.com/willemt/CStreamingBencodeReader is your poison! (Tradeoff: it uses the heap)
