David,

Well, off-hand, no.  But I do have some time on my hands, and I have 
had some success porting C source to the iSeries.  So, I am volunteering 
some programming effort.

Would the public-domain source from 
<http://www.fourmilab.ch/webtools/base64/> come close to suiting your 
needs?  I notice that it promises EBCDIC support, if that helps you.

You do not say what programming language you are using; would you 
rather pass parameters or deal with a filter?

Please let me know what you think.

Terry.
