BASE64(1) User Commands BASE64(1)
base64 - base64 encode/decode data and print to standard output
base64 [OPTION] [FILE]
Base64 encode or decode FILE, or standard input, to standard output.
Wrap encoded lines after COLS character (default 76). Use 0 to
disable line wrapping.
When decoding, ignore non-alphabet characters.
--help Display this help and exit.
Output version information and exit.
With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
The data are encoded as described for the base64 alphabet in RFC 3548.
When decoding, the input may contain newlines in addition to the bytes
of the formal base64 alphabet. Use --ignore-garbage to attempt to
recover from any other non-alphabet bytes in the encoded stream.
