       a64l(), l64a() - convert between long integer and base-64 ASCII string

   Obsolescent Interface
       These  functions	 are  used to maintain numbers stored in base-64 ASCII
       characters.  This is a notation by which long integers  can  be	repreā€
       sented  by up to six characters; each character represents a "digit" in
       a radix-64 notation.

       The characters used to represent "digits" are for 0, for 1, through for
       2-11, through for 12-37, and through for 38-63.

       The leftmost character is the least significant digit.  For example,
		      a0 = (38 x 64^0) + (2 x 64^1) = 166

       takes a pointer to a null-terminated base-64 representation and returns
       a corresponding value.  If the string pointed to	 by  s	contains  more
       than six characters, uses the first six.

       takes  a	 argument  and	returns a pointer to the corresponding base-64
       representation.	If the argument is 0, returns  a  pointer  to  a  null

   Obsolescent Interface
       converts between long integer and base-64 ASCII string.

       The value returned by is a pointer into a buffer, the contents of which
       are overwritten subsequent calls by the same thread.

       is an obsolescent  interface  supported	only  for  compatibility  with
       existing DCE applications. New multithreaded applications should use
