unchecked-index 0.2.2

Unchecked indexing wrapper using regular index syntax.

# unchecked-index

Unchecked indexing through the regular index syntax.

Using a wrapper type that requires an `unsafe` block to create.

- crates.io: https://crates.io/crates/unchecked-index
- travis: https://travis-ci.org/bluss/unchecked-index

*Note:* All unchecked indexing here is actually “checked” with *debug
assertions* when they are enabled (they are off by default in release
builds). This is a feature! Debug checking does **not** make your code safe,
 but it helps finding bugs in `unsafe` code. Test your code responsibly.

## Example


use unchecked_index::unchecked_index;

/// unsafe because: trusts the permutation to be correct
unsafe fn apply_permutation<T>(perm: &mut [usize], v: &mut [T]) {
    debug_assert_eq!(perm.len(), v.len());
    // use unchecked (in reality, debug-checked) indexing throughout
    let mut perm = unchecked_index(perm);
    for i in 0..perm.len() {
        let mut current = i;
        while i != perm[current] {
            let next = perm[current];
            // move element from next to current
            v.swap(next, current);
            perm[current] = current;
            current = next;
        perm[current] = current;
