NAME

MIME::Base32 - Base32 encoder and decoder

SYNOPSIS

    #!/usr/bin/env perl
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use MIME::Base32;

    my $encoded = encode_base32('Aladdin: open sesame');
    my $decoded = decode_base32($encoded);

DESCRIPTION

This module is for encoding/decoding data much the way that MIME::Base64 does.

Prior to version 1.0, MIME::Base32 used the base32hex (or [0-9A-V]) encoding and decoding methods by default. If you need to maintain that behavior, please call encode_base32hex or decode_base32hex functions directly.

Now, in accordance with RFC-3548, Section 6, MIME::Base32 uses the encode_base32 and decode_base32 functions by default.

FUNCTIONS

The following primary functions are provided:
