a64l(3)								       a64l(3)

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

       long a64l (s)
       char ∗s;

       char ∗l64a (l)
       long l;

       These  functions	 are  used to maintain numbers stored in base-64 ASCII
       characters.  This is a notation by which long integers  can  be	repre‐
       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,  0
       through 9 for 2-11, A through Z for 12-37, and a through z for 38-63.

       The subroutine takes a pointer to a null-terminated base-64 representa‐
       tion and returns a corresponding long value.  If the string pointed  to
       by s contains more than six characters, will use the first six.

       The  subroutine takes a long argument and returns a pointer to the cor‐
       responding base-64 representation.  If the argument  is	0,  returns  a
       pointer to a null string.

       The  value  returned by is a pointer into a static buffer, the contents
       of which are overwritten by each call.
