NAME
       base64 - base64 encode/decode data and print to standard output

SYNOPSIS
       base64 [OPTION]... [FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       Base64 encode or decode FILE, or standard input, to standard output.

       Mandatory  arguments  to	 long  options are mandatory for short options
       too.

       -d, --decode
	      decode data

       -i, --ignore-garbage
	      when decoding, ignore non-alphabet characters

       -w, --wrap=COLS
	      wrap encoded lines after COLS character (default 76).  Use 0  to
	      disable line wrapping

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
	      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.
