MIME::Base64

Name

MIME::Base64 - Encoding and decoding Base64 ASCII strings. A Perl6 implementation of MIME::Base64

Description

Implements encoding and decoding to and from base64.

Status

Version 1.1 and later works on latest Rakudo based on nom. For earlier versions of Rakudo based on ng, please use v1.0 (see tag v1.0-ng).

Example Usage

use MIME::Base64;

my $encoded = MIME::Base64.encode-str("xyzzy‽");
my $decoded = MIME::Base64.decode-str($encoded);

or

use MIME::Base64;

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

Methods

encode(Blob $data, :$oneline --> Str)

Encodeѕ binary data $data in base64 format.

By default, the output is wrapped every 76 characters. If :$oneline is set, wrapping will be disabled.

decode(Str $encoded --> Buf)

Decodes base64 encoded data into a binary buffer.

encode-str(Str $string, :$oneline --> Str)

Encodes $string into base64, assuming utf8 encoding.

(Ιnternally calls .encode($string.encode('utf8')) )

decode-str(Str $encoded --> Str)

Decodes $encoded into a string, assuming utf8 encoding.

(Internally calls .decode($encoded).decode('utf8') )

Compatibility Methods

encode_base64(Str $string --> Str)

Calls .encode-str($string)

decode_base64(Str $encoded --> Str)

Calls .decode-str($encoded)

MIME::Base64::Perl

Pure Perl 6 implementation of base64 encoding.
