Method MIME.encode()


Method encode

string encode(string data, string encoding, void|string filename, void|int no_linebreaks)

Description

Encode raw data into something suitable for transport to other systems.

The encoding can be any of

"7bit"
"8bit"
"base64"
"binary"
"quoted-printable"
"x-uue"
