Tradeoffs

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)
