    "Works exactly as advertised, and very fast"

    March 19, 2009   |   By kschang

    Version: Base64 De-/Encoder 1.2.1

    Pros

    Very simple command interface
    Help screen if no parameters entered
    Extremely fast operation

    Cons

    Really needs a GUI, area to paste in text, ability to specify output,
    need to auto-strip headers,
    need to handle multiple attachment streams

    Summary

    Base64 De-Encoder is exactly what it says it is: it will encode something into a base64 text stream, or reverse the process by decoding. It relies on you, the operator, to strip out the headers, separate the attachment streams (if there are several), and present it with a clean base64 stream. If you do so, and knows command prompts, it is extremely fast and efficient.

    However, one couldn't help but to think that this program could be so much more, like having the ability to auto-strip the headers, auto-separate multiple streams, have a GUI, suggest output names, have the ability to accept streams in clipboard or area to paste such texts instead of only load them from files, and so on.

    That's s why it's only getting 4 stars out of 5. The author didn't go out of his way to add features to the program, but it does what it does very well. I have used it and extracted Word Documents out of raw base64 code inside e-mails. Works perfectly.

    "Worked well for me. Converted embeded pdf back to pdf."

    September 16, 2008

    Version: Base64 De-/Encoder 1.1.1

    Pros

    No install. Command line, give it command, input file name, output file name and it is done.

    Cons

    None that I know of.

    Summary

    This program allowed me to convert an embeded pdf from an e-mail back to a pdf. The file was embeded as base64 information. I deleted all the parts of the e-mail that were not part of the encoded information. Saved the file and used that as the input for the program and my pdf was recreated. Worked great!!!
