Line 1: Line 1:
 +======Synopsis:​======
 +$[[b64decode]](//<​stuff>//​)
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +Returns the inverse RFC1421 transformation of //<​stuff>//,​ commonly known 
 +as Base64. ​ The inverse transformation converts four Base64 digits into 
 +three bytes.
 +
 +Alas, because ircII only supports C strings, if //<​stuff>//​ decodes to 
 +binary data (with nuls) it will probably not do what you hope.
 +
 +The reverse transformation is [[b64encode]].
 +
 +Don't confuse this encoding with the one used by FiSH (popularized by eggdrop ​
 +and other irc clients for encrypted messages). ​ FiSH uses l64a encoding, and 
 +can be decoded using the [[xform]] FISH64 transform.
 +
 +======Returns:​======
 +The rfc1421 string //<​stuff>//​ converted into a C string.
