Convert byte string to base 64
Note: Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented methods. The OO equivalent for the $Lstr_Base64_Encode function is StringToBase64.
This function converts a byte string into its base 64 encoding. It is identical to $Base64_Encode, except it is longstring capable.
The $Lstr_Base64_Encode function accepts one argument and returns a string result which is the base 64 encoding of that argument.
The first argument is a longstring.
The returned value is the base 64 encoding of the argument string.
%coded = $Lstr_Base64_Encode(string)
%coded is set to the base 64 encoding of string
- $Lstr_Base64_Decode is the inverse of $Lstr_Base64_Encode.
- This $function is new in Version 6.8 of the Sirius Mods.
Given the following argument of length 3:
%junk = $Lstr_Base64_Encode($X2C('001083'))
%junk is set to the byte string (of length 4) represented in character as 'ABCD'.
