Node.js binding for larskholte/a85.
From Wikipedia: Ascii85, also called Base85, is a form of binary-to-text encoding developed by Paul E. Rutter for the btoa utility. By using five ASCII characters to represent four bytes of binary data (making the encoded size 1⁄4 larger than the original, assuming eight bits per ASCII character), it is more efficient than uuencode or Base64, which use four characters to represent three bytes of data (1⁄3 increase, assuming eight bits per ASCII character). source
a85.stringify(input: Buffer): string
- Encode a
a85.parse(input: string): Buffer
- Decode an ascii85 string into a Buffer
Note: This method will not detect invalid ascii85 string!
