Description

Fast and efficient encoding and decoding of base64-encoded strings.

Since: 0.1.0.0

Synopsis

# Documentation

Encode a string into base64 form. The result will always be a multiple of 4 bytes in length.

Decode a base64-encoded string. This function strictly follows the specification in RFC 4648.

(Note: this means that even "\n" and "\r\n" as line breaks are rejected rather than ignored. If you are using this in the context of a standard that overrules RFC 4648 such as HTTP multipart mime bodies, consider using decodeLenient.)

Decode a base64-encoded string. This function is lenient in following the specification from RFC 4648, and will not generate parse errors no matter how poor its input.
