The decodebase64( function decodes data using Base64.
This function has one parameter:
text – is the text to be decoded. This text must have been encoded using Base64.
This function decodes data using Base64 encoding. Base64 encoding is widely used on the web and in e-mail for encoding binary data and allowing it to be transmitted as text. See Base64 Encoding in Wikipedia for more information.
This example converts a message into Base64 format:
Later the packet can be converted back into the original data like this:
If the original value was text, you would need to explicitly convert it back to text after decoding it, as shown below. Note: the final result of this will be a Unicode string.
