Module: Blur::Encryption::Base64

Defined in:
library/blur/encryption/base64.rb

Overview

The Encryption::Base64 module differs from the original Base64 implementation. I'm not sure how exactly, perhaps the charset?

I originally found the Ruby implementation of FiSH on a website where it was graciously submitted by an anonymous user, since then I've implemented it in a weechat script, and now I've refactored it for use in Blur.
