cl-base64 provides base64 (RFC 1521) encoding and decoding.

cl-base64 is maintained by Kevin Rosenberg and is based on the base64 library by Juri Pakaste. It is available in the Debian distribution.

Compared to base64, cl-base64 provides:

  • ASDF file for loading
  • Support for case-sensitive AllegroCL
  • Highly optimized versions of original base64 routines
  • New routines that encode from integers and decode to integers
  • Modified Base64 character set for URI encoding, keyword selectable
