NAME
       basenc -	Encode/decode data and print to	standard output

SYNOPSIS
       basenc [OPTION]... [FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       basenc encode or	decode FILE, or	standard input,	to standard output.

       With no FILE, or	when FILE is -,	read standard input.

       Mandatory  arguments  to	 long  options are mandatory for short options
       too.

       --base64
	      same as 'base64' program (RFC4648	section	4)

       --base64url
	      file- and	url-safe base64	(RFC4648 section 5)

       --base32
	      same as 'base32' program (RFC4648	section	6)

       --base32hex
	      extended hex alphabet base32 (RFC4648 section 7)

       --base16
	      hex encoding (RFC4648 section 8)

       --base2msbf
	      bit string with most significant bit (msb) first

       --base2lsbf
	      bit string with least significant	bit (lsb) first

       -d, --decode
	      decode data

       -i, --ignore-garbage
	      when decoding, ignore non-alphabet characters

       -w, --wrap=COLS
	      wrap encoded lines after COLS character (default 76).  Use 0  to
	      disable line wrapping

       --z85  ascii85-like encoding (ZeroMQ spec:32/Z85); when encoding, input
	      length must be a multiple	of 4; when decoding, input length must
	      be a multiple of 5

       --help display this help	and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       When  decoding, the input may contain newlines in addition to the bytes
       of the formal alphabet.	Use --ignore-garbage  to  attempt  to  recover
       from any	other non-alphabet bytes in the	encoded	stream.
