NAME

MIME::Base64 - Encoding and decoding Base64 ASCII strings

SYNOPSIS

use MIME::Base64;

my $encoded = MIME::Base64.encode-str("xyzzy‽", :eol("\x0D\x0A"));
my $decoded = MIME::Base64.decode-str($encoded);

or

use MIME::Base64;

my $encoded     = MIME::Base64.encode($blob, );
my $decoded-buf = MIME::Base64.decode($encoded);

DESCRIPTION

Implements encoding and decoding to and from base64.

METHODS

encode(Blob $data, :$oneline, :$eol = "\n" --> Str:D)

Encodeѕ binary data $data in base64 format.

By default, the output is wrapped every 76 characters. If :$oneline is set, wrapping will be disabled. Also optionally takes a :eol named argument to indicate the type of line-ending to be used. Defaults to "\n".

decode(Str:D $encoded --> Str:D)

Decodes base64 encoded data into a binary buffer.

encode-str(Str:D $string, :$oneline, :$eol = "\n" --> Str:D)`

Encodes $string into base64, assuming utf8 encoding. By default, the output is wrapped every 76 characters. If :$oneline is set, wrapping will be disabled. Also optionally takes a :eol named argument to indicate the type of line-ending to be used. Defaults to "\n".

decode-str(Str:D $encoded --> Str:D)`

Decodes $encoded into a string, assuming utf8 encoding.

COMPATIBILITY METHODS

encode_base64(Str:D $string --> Str:D)

Same as .encode-str($string.

decode_base64(Str:D $encoded --> Str:D)

Calls .decode-str($encoded)
