wc-rs: A faster port of unix wc in Rust

Hey there. I tried to rewrite wc in Rust and compared its performance with the GNU coreutils wc and it turned out to be much more efficient. In case anyone is interested check out the benchmarks in the README

Install it and play around with it. I am new to Rust so if there is any room for improvement in my code kindly point it out here or raise issue. Oh and consider giving it a ⭐️ if you like what you see.
