deflate 0.3.0

An in-memory DEFLATE and zlib encoder written in safe rust


An rust implementation of a DEFLATE encoder. Not a direct port, but does take some inspiration from zlib and zopfli(for huffman code length generation).

So far, in-memory deflate encoding with and without zlib metadata (no zlib dictionary or gzip support yet) has been is implemented. No unsafe code has been used. Currently not very optimised, and is very slow on larger files.
