Base64 encoder

Base64 encoder is a tool that is used to encode binary data (such as images, audio files, or other non-text data) into a format that can be transmitted over text-based channels, such as email, HTML, or XML. Base64 encoding is a way of representing binary data as ASCII text, by converting each 3-byte sequence of binary data into a 4-byte sequence of printable characters.

The Base64 encoding process involves dividing the input data into 6-bit chunks and mapping them to a set of 64 printable ASCII characters. The resulting output is a string of ASCII text that can be easily transmitted over text-based channels, without the risk of data corruption or loss.

Base64 encoding is commonly used in email systems, web browsers, and other applications where binary data needs to be transmitted over text-based channels. It is also used in cryptographic applications, as a way of representing binary data in a format that can be easily encrypted and decrypted.

Base64 encoding can be performed manually using specialized tools or online services, or it can be integrated into software applications using programming libraries or APIs.
