base64.rb: methods for base64-encoding and -decoding stings


Yukihiro Matsumoto


Dave Thomas and Gavin Sinclair

Until Ruby 1.8.1, these methods were defined at the top-level. Now they are in the Base64 module but included in the top-level, where their usage is deprecated.

See Base64 for documentation.
