It sometimes happen when writing connected application that you need to manipulate data in Base64, Quoted Printable or UU format. This is fairly easy with Symbian OS as three simple classes, all derivating from TImCodec, will do the job for you:

  • TImCodecB64 for Base64,
  • TImCodecQP} for Quoted-Printable,
  • TImCodecUU for UU format.

Header file

#include <imcvcodc.h>

MMP file

LIBRARY imut.lib


Their usage is similar and fairly simple:

void DoBase64Encoding(const TDesC8& aSourceData, TDes8& aEncodedData)
{
TImCodecB64 b64enc;
b64enc.Initialise();
b64enc.Encode(aSourceData,aEncodedData);
}
