Subject: base64 Encode a tiff image.
I want to encode a TIF image stored on the IFS and to embed it into an XML document that will be downloaded on a web browser.
I know that by open() the IFS file, then QDCXLATE(), and base64_encode() -of course using Scott's tools- do the magic, but has to be by reading in a loop the buffer returned by open().
However, I want to save some extra programming by avoiding the loop and convert the full streamed file in one single step (I'm already using CGIDEV2-LoadStreamFile that returns the streamed file).
I found that I can use 'iconv' API from QTQICONV service program to do this conversion, does somebody can share an example of parameters to be used for 'iconv'?.
Thanks you all.
