Ascii85 implementation in C#
I recently needed to smuggle some binary data through HTTP headers without exceeding the message length limit; Ascii85 seemed like the best choice.
There were a couple of implementations available on the bathroom wall of code, but they had various problems that precluded their use:
- No tests
- Few comments
- Unknown license
- Violated .NET Framework Design Guidelines
As with the other code on this blog, it's released under a MIT-style license.
