alleakator provides a global allocator that leaks memory on purpose.
If you have a step based program that only runs for a short time, leaking memory is okay - and the fastest computations are the ones that aren't done.
This crate avoids the runtime overhead of freeing memory by just not doing it.
Add this to your main.rs:
static GLOBAL: Alleakator<YourAllocator> = Alleakator<YourAllocator>;
This works even if you don't use the standard library.
All function calls are forwarded to a parent allocator that you can specify except
dealloc, which is just empty.
Contributions are welcome.
