Encode::Positive::Digits - Encode a positive integer using the specified digits and vice-versa

Synopsis

 use Encode::Positive::Digits;

 ok 101 == Encode::Positive::Digits::encode(  "5", "01");
 ok   5 == Encode::Positive::Digits::decode("101", "01");

 ok "hello world" eq Encode::Positive::Digits::encode(4830138323689, " abcdefghlopqrw");
 ok 4830138323689 == Encode::Positive::Digits::decode("hello world", " abcdefghlopqrw");

The numbers to be encoded or decoded can be much greater than 2**64 via support from Math::BigInt, such numbers should be placed inside strings to avoid inadvertent truncation.

  my $n = '1'.('0'x999).'1';

  my $d = Encode::Positive::Digits::decode($n, "01");
  my $e = Encode::Positive::Digits::encode($d, "01");

  ok $n == $e

  ok length($d) ==  302;
  ok length($e) == 1001;
  ok length($n) == 1001;
