LAD - Load All the Data

LAD is a rust crate for parsing and reading WAD files. That's about it.

Getting started

In your Cargo.toml, add the following:

lad = "*"

to include the library with your project, and then in your main.rs, add the following to the top:

extern crate lad;

There you go! You can now use LAD in your project! As an example - assuming you have a file named DOOM2.WAD in your current working directory, you can simply do

use std::path::Path;

fn main() {
    let doom2 = lad::Wad::load(&Path::new("DOOM2.WAD").unwrap());
    println!("{:?}", doom2);

and then run with cargo run, and then it should print the contents of the doom2 variable, showing all the entries + data in it.
