All predicatesShow sourcebase64.pl -- Base64 encoding and decoding

Prolog-based base64 encoding using DCG rules. Encoding according to rfc2045. For example:

1 ?- base64('Hello World', X).
X = 'SGVsbG8gV29ybGQ='.

2 ?- base64(H, 'SGVsbG8gV29ybGQ=').
H = 'Hello World'.

The Base64URL encoding provides a URL and file name friendly alternative to base64. Base64URL encoded strings do not contain white space.

bug
- Base64 only works with bytes. The grammars do not check the input to be in the range 0..255.
To be done
- Stream I/O
- White-space introduction and parsing
- Encoding support (notably UTF-8)

base64_encoded(-Plain, +Encoded, +Options) is det
General the base64 encoding and decoding. This predicate subsumes base64/2 and base64url/2, providing control over padding, the characters used for encoding and the output type. Options:
charset(+Charset)
Define the encoding character set to use. The (default) classic uses the classical rfc2045 characters. The value url uses URL and file name friendly characters. See base64url/2.
padding(+Boolean)
If true (default), the output is padded with = characters.
as(+Type)
Defines the type of the output. One of string (default) or atom.
encoding(+Encoding)
Encoding to use for translation between (Unicode) text and bytes (Base64 is an encoding for bytes). Default is utf8.
Arguments:
Plain- is an atom or string containing the unencoded (plain) text.
Encoded- is an atom or string containing the base64 encoded version of Plain.
Source base64(+Plain, -Encoded) is det
base64(-Plain, +Encoded) is det
Equivalent to base64_encoded/3 using the options as(atom) and encoding(iso_latin_1).
deprecated
- New code should use base64_encoded/3. Notably the iso_latin_1 should be utf8 in most today's applications.
Source base64url(+Plain, -Encoded) is det
base64url(-Plain, +Encoded) is det
Translates between plaintext and base64url encoded atom or string. Base64URL encoded values can safely be used as URLs and file names. The use "-" instead of "+", "_" instead of "/" and do not use padding. This implies that the encoded value cannot be embedded inside a longer string.

Equivalent to base64_encoded/3 using the options as(atom), encoding(utf8) and charset(url).
