Description

Base64Decode & Base64Encode are a fast decoder and encoder for base64 (MIME)
encoded binaries that can be sent through electronic mail.

Base64 encoding is very much like uuencoding, only it is part of the much
more comprehensive MIME format. MIME allows you to send pictures, sound and
other binary files via e-mail. If you do not use a MIME aware mail reader
then you will not see the effect of this, but at least you can now decode
the included binaries thanks to Base64Decode! Simply save the base64 encoded
part as a text file and have Base64Decode decode it for you. If you are a
Spot user then you can use the included ARexx script for this.


Features

 - Simple and easy to use Shell commands.

 - Written in 100% assembly for optimal speed and size.

 - Faster than any other base64 decoder/encoder for the Amiga known to me.

 - Separate (faster) '020 versions included.

 - Decoder is not so fussy if the base64 code is embedded in some text. This
   is not fool proof though (it can't be). By using the USEMINLEN option
   this is greatly improved.

 - Decoder can extract the filename from the MIME header.

 - AUTONAME option for when the decoder can't find a filename in the MIME
   header.

 - User settable I/O buffer size.

 - The code is pure and can be made resident.

 - ARexx script for Spot included.


Requirements

Base64Decode & Base64Encode require AmigaOS Release 2 or higher to operate.
The '020 versions require a 68020 or higher CPU.
