// A basic Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) encoder as defined by
// This is a generic encoder that supplies
// canonical, well-formed CBOR values but does not guarantee their validity
// (see
// Supported:
// * Major types:
// * 0: Unsigned integers, up to INT64_MAX.
// * 1: Negative integers, to INT64_MIN.
// * 2: Byte strings.
// * 3: UTF-8 strings.
// * 4: Arrays, with the number of elements known at the start.
// * 5: Maps, with the number of elements known at the start
// of the container.
// * 7: Simple values.
// Unsupported:
// * Floating-point numbers.
// * Indefinite-length encodings.
// * Parsing.
// Requirements for canonical CBOR as suggested by RFC 7049 are:
// 1) All major data types for the CBOR values must be as short as possible.
// * Unsigned integer between 0 to 23 must be expressed in same byte as
// the major type.
// * 24 to 255 must be expressed only with an additional uint8_t.
// * 256 to 65535 must be expressed only with an additional uint16_t.
// * 65536 to 4294967295 must be expressed only with an additional
// uint32_t. * The rules for expression of length in major types
// 2 to 5 follow the above rule for integers.
// 2) Keys in every map must be sorted (first by major type, then by key
// length, then by value in byte-wise lexical order).
// 3) Indefinite length items must be converted to definite length items.
// 4) All maps must not have duplicate keys.
// Current implementation of Writer encoder meets all the requirements of
// canonical CBOR.
