With this dialog you can Encode and Decode strings with the following methods:


URL: Encode string characters using the hex escape syntax of RFC1738.  Non-alphanumeric characters other than period, dash and underline are replaced by '%' followed by a 2-digit ASCII hex code.


Base64: base64 encoding compatible with Internet protocol RFC 1521 (the MIME standard).  Data encoded in this manner is safe for Internet, database and mainframe storage and use. By definition, the resultant string is at least 1/3 longer than the original


UUEncoded: Encode binary Source string using Unix-to-Unix encoding. Encoding increases the overall length of string by 1/3.  This encoding technique has never been formalized and as a result, a number of different variations exist.


Crypt: Encrypts a string exactly like the crypt function in perl. The salt used is random (you can only encode, decode will not function Icon_sad).


Hexadecimal  - Binary: These convert decimal numbers to hex and binary. In the top editor enter a decimal number, and expect the conversion to be made in the bottom. By changing the bottom editor, the corresponding decimal will appear in the top editor.



icon_idea How to work fast with the encoder: Select some text in the main or other editor, and the open the encoder, or press Ctrl-I (default shortcut). This will copy the selected text so it can be encoded. After selecting the method, press the replace button to make the replacement and return to the last editor.
