Minimalist protocol buffer decoder and encoder in C++

Minimalistic protocol buffer decoder and encoder in C++.

Designed for high performance. Suitable for writing zero copy parsers and encoders with minimal need for run-time allocation of memory.

Low-level this is designed to be a building block for writing a very customized decoder for a stable protobuf schema. If your protobuf schema is changing frequently or lazy decoding is not critical for your application then this approach offers no value just use the C++ API that can be generated with the Google Protobufs protoc program.
