leb128 = "0.2.1"

Example

use leb128;

let mut buf = [0; 1024];

// Write to anything that implements `std::io::Write`.
{
    let mut writable = &mut buf[..];
    leb128::write::signed(&mut writable, -12345).expect("Should write number");
}

Read-Eval-Print-Loop for LEB128

This crate comes with a leb128-repl program that you can use after cargo install leb128 or by running cargo run in clone of this repository.

$ leb128-repl
LEB128 Read-Eval-Print-Loop!

Converts numbers to signed and unsigned LEB128 and displays the results in
