Base64 coding refers to encoding data from binary to text. This translates binary data to a radix-64 format in order to represent binary data in an ASCII string format.
There are many methods that are part of the Python
base64.a85encode is one of the methods of the
a85encode is used to encode bytes-like objects to ASCII using the ASCII85 alphabet.
base64.a85encode(b, foldspaces=False, wrapcol=0, pad=False, adobe=False)
b: A bytes-like object.
True, the 4 consecutive spaces will be replaced by a character
wrapcol: Refers to the count of characters before a new line is encountered.
True, the bytes-like object is padded in a multiple of 4.
True, the encoded string is written between
The parameters do not have a significant impact when
import base64 # Data data = "Welcome to Educative" print("data:", data) # converting the data to bytes-form data_bytes = data.encode("UTF-8") # perform the a85 encode function result = base64.a85encode(data_bytes) result1 = base64.a85encode(data_bytes, adobe=True) print("a85encoded: ", result) print("with adobe: ", result1) ## We can use a85decode function to perform reverse operation. result1 = base64.a85decode(result) print("a85decoded: ", result1)
