Creates a base-64 encoded ASCII string from a string of binary data.

Parameters

data : string
The data to encode

var encodedData = base64.encode(unicodeString, "utf-8");
Returns

string : The encoded string

decode(data, charset)

Decodes a string of data which has been encoded using base-64 encoding.

Parameters

data : string
