Base64 Encoding a File with RPG

Base64 Encoding a File with RPG

This is some sample source of how I convert a file in the IFS to Base 64 using the APR Base 64 APIs.  This isn't complete as there were some small additional functions used in this, but they should be pretty self explanatory and easily substituted with functions of your own.

It also is pretty old and doesn't include any /copy source for the IFS functions, but they are also readily available.
