Library for fast Base64 encoding and decoding
libb64 is a library of ANSI C routines for fast encoding/decoding of data into and from a Base64-encoded format. C++ wrappers are included, as well as the source code for standalone encoding and decoding executables.
Base64 uses a subset of displayable ASCII characters, and is therefore a useful encoding for storing binary data in a text file, such as XML, or sending binary data over text-only communication channels.
