sasl_encode64 - Encode base64 string

Synopsis

#include <sasl/saslutil.h>

int sasl_encode64(const char * input,
                unsigned inputlen,
                char * output,
                unsigned outmax,
                unsigned * outputlen);

Description

Use the sasl_encode64() interface to convert an octet string into a base64 string. This routine is useful for SASL profiles that use base64, such as the IMAP (IMAP4) and POP (POP_AUTH) profiles. The output is null‐terminated. If outlen is non‐NULL, the length is placed in the outlen.

int sasl_encode64(const char * input,
unsigned inputlen,
const char ** output,
unsigned outmax,
unsigned * outputlen);
Parameters:
  • input – input data.
  • inputlen – length of the input data.
  • output – contains the decoded data. The value of out can be the same as in. However, there must be enough space.
  • outputlen – length of output.
  • outmax – The maximum size of the output buffer.

Return Value

SASL functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for a complete list. SASL_OK indicates success.

Other return codes indicate errors and should be handled.
