== Rack Fast Escape/Unescape

  The Rack Fast Escape library, by The Rubyists, LLC

This library replaces the Rack::Utils.escape and #unescape methods
with the versions from URLEscape, a C extension which increases the
efficiency of these methods at least 20x.  On jruby using URLEscape this is a 4x increase.

== Download

  Standard gem locations, source on github 

== Usage

  require "rack"
  require "rack_fast_escape"
  Rack::Utils.escape("%03a" * 10000000)

Note: The above with Rack::Utils.escape may eat a lot of cycles.

== Tests

If you have the full source, run the specs with 'rake' in the
root of the library tree (lib/..).
