SQL has functions for that and Scott K also has some nice functions. There are also some apache runtime functions you can use, but they're not well documented.

I've been tasked with generating a JSON document that contains a PDF

IFS API's to read in the PDF file, but I'm not sure about how to get
it Base64 encoded.

The process is in RPG, but I'd be open to anything that can be
practically called from RPG as well.

Any suggestions?
