NAME

Badger::Codec::Base64 - encode/decode data using MIME::Base64

SYNOPSIS

    use Badger::Codec::Base64;
    my $codec   = Badger::Codec::Base64->new();
    my $encoded = $codec->encode("Hello World");
    my $decoded = $codec->decode($encoded);

DESCRIPTION

This module implements a subclass of Badger::Codec which uses the encode_base64 and decode_base64 subroutines provided by the MIME::Base64 module to encode and decode data.

It a very thin wrapper around the MIME::Base64 module and offers no functional advantage over it. It exist only to provide a consistent API with other Badger::Codec modules.

METHODS

encode($data)

Encodes the data referenced by the first argument using encode_base64().

    $encoded = Badger::Codec::Base64->encode($data);   

decode($data)

Decodes the encoded data passed as the first argument using decode_base64().

    $decoded = Badger::Codec::Base64->decode($encoded);

encoder()

This method returns a reference to the real subroutine that's doing all the encoding work, i.e. the encode_base64() method in MIME::Base64.

decoder()

This method returns a reference to the real subroutine that's doing all the decoding work, i.e. the decode_base64() method in MIME::Base64.
