Update: cleaned up to ensure stuff wasn't being treated as tags.
On odd occasions there is a need to do Base64 decoding to view a file.
One example is to view an attachment that is available on a mailing list archive. Say for example, something like this from a Crypto group.
This can be pretty easy to do if you know the right magic on a real operating system (unix backed).
1) copy and paste the output into a file 2) openssl base64 -d <inputfile >out.pdf 3) grin merrily… there is no step 3 (like Instiki).
(For those interested — the OS X post is cause I switched … I have a G4 iBook and I am loving it ).
