GNU R fast and URL-safe Base64 encoder and decoder


In contrast to RFC3548, the 62nd character ("+") is replaced with "-", the 63rd character ("/") is replaced with "_". Furthermore, the encoder does not fill the string with trailing "=". The resulting encoded strings comply to the regular expression pattern "[A-Za-z0-9_-]" and thus are safe to use in URLs or for file names. The package also comes with a simple base32 encoder/decoder suited for case insensitive file systems.
