Convert::Base32(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   Convert::Base32(3)

NAME
       Convert::Base32 - Encoding and decoding of base32 strings

SYNOPSIS
	 use Convert::Base32;

	 $encoded = encode_base32("\x3a\x27\x0f\x93");
	 $decoded = decode_base32($encoded);

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides functions to convert string	from / to Base32
       encoding, specified in RACE internet-draft. The Base32 encoding is
       designed	to encode non-ASCII characters in DNS-compatible host name
       parts.

       See http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-idn-race-03 for more details.

FUNCTIONS
       Following functions are provided; like "MIME::Base64", they are in
       @EXPORT array. See Exporter for details.

       encode_base32($str)
	   Encode data by calling the encode_base32() function.	This function
	   takes a string of bytes to encode and returns the encoded base32
	   string.

       decode_base32($str)
	   Decode a base32 string by calling the decode_base32() function.
	   This	function takes a string	to decode and returns the decoded
	   string.

	   This	function might throw the exceptions such as "Data contains
	   non-base32 characters", "Length of data invalid" and	"Padding bits
	   at the end of output	buffer are not all zero".

	   decode_base32 differs from the specification	in that	upper case
	   letters are treated as their	lower case equivalent rather than
	   producing an	error.
