That function is what I needed to do the base64 decoding. I must convert from base64 to binary, and then use textDecode to convert from binary directly to unicode text:


Unfortunately, this does not help with quoted-printable encoded strings…

Doing a search in the Dictionary for “decode”, yields: arrayDecode, base64Decode, binaryDecode, textDecode, uniDecode and URLDecode. None of these seem to do quoted-printable… :(

Has anyone written a custom function? I’d rather not re-invent the wheel, if it’s been done before…
