applesingle, binhex, macbinary -- encode and decode files SYNOPSIS
<tool> probe file ... <tool> [decode] [-c] [-fv] [-C dir] [-o outfile] [file ...] <tool> -h | -V applesingle encode [-cfv] [-s suf] [-C dir] [-o outfile] file ... binhex encode [-R] [-cfv] [-s suf] [-C dir] [-o outfile] file ... macbinary encode [-t 1-3] [-cfv] [-s suf] [-C dir] [-o outfile] file ... DESCRIPTION
applesingle, binhex, macbinary are implemented as a single tool with multiple names. All invocations support the three verbs encode, decode, and probe. If multiple files are passed to probe, the exit status will be non-zero only if all files contain data in the specified encoding. OPTIONS
-f, --force perform the operation even if the output file already exists -h, --help display version and usage, then quit -v, --verbose be verbose -V, --version display version, then quit -c, --pipe, --from-stdin, --to-stdout For decode, read encoded data from the standand input. For encode, write encoded data to the standard output. Currently, "plain" data must be written to and from specified filenames (see also mount_fdesc(8)). -C, --directory dir create output files in dir -o, --rename name Use name for output, overriding any stored or default name. For encode, the appropriate suffix will be added to name. -o implies only one file to be encoded or decoded. -s, --suffix .suf override the default suffix for the given encoding -R, --no-runlength-encoding don't use BinHex runlength compression when encoding -t, --type 1-3 Specify MacBinary encoding type. Type 1 is undesirable because it has neither a checksum nor a signature and is thus difficult to recognize. DIAGNOSTICS
In general, the tool returns a non-zero exit status if it fails. Darwin 14 November 2005 Darwin

base64 - base64-encode/decode binary data SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8 package require base64 ?2.4? ::base64::encode ?-maxlen maxlen? ?-wrapchar wrapchar? string ::base64::decode string _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package provides procedures to encode binary data into base64 and back. ::base64::encode ?-maxlen maxlen? ?-wrapchar wrapchar? string Base64 encodes the given binary string and returns the encoded result. Inserts the character wrapchar every maxlen characters of output. wrapchar defaults to newline. maxlen defaults to 60. Note well: If your string is not simple ascii you should fix the string encoding before doing base64 encoding. See the examples. The command will throw an error for negative values of maxlen, or if maxlen is not an integer number. ::base64::decode string Base64 decodes the given string and returns the binary data. The decoder ignores whitespace in the string. EXAMPLES
% base64::encode "Hello, world" SGVsbG8sIHdvcmxk % base64::encode [string repeat xyz 20] eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6 eHl6eHl6eHl6 % base64::encode -wrapchar "" [string repeat xyz 20] eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6eHl6 # NOTE: base64 encodes BINARY strings. % set chemical [encoding convertto utf-8 "Cu2088Hu2081u2080Nu2084Ou2082"] % set encoded [base64::encode $chemical] Q+KCiEjigoHigoBO4oKET+KCgg== % set caffeine [encoding convertfrom utf-8 [base64::decode $encoded]] BUGS, IDEAS, FEEDBACK This document, and the package it describes, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems.
