I have a customer using Scotts Base64 decoding stuff and I told him I'd ask
his question for him.

He's getting the following error decoding data that is pretty big:

CPF9897 Escape 40 12/09/22 16:07:30.792369 BASE64R4 MGFOBJ *STMT TM008
MPLIB *STMT
From module . . . . . . . . : BASE64R4
From procedure . . . . . . : INVALIDCHAR
Statement . . . . . . . . . : 471
To module . . . . . . . . . : TM008
To procedure . . . . . . . : _QRNP_PEP_TM008
Statement . . . . . . . . . : *N
Message . . . . : Unable to decode character at position 65536. (Char=x'40')
Cause . . . . . : No additional online help information is available.

I thought at first it was because the field was over 65535. But then I saw
the character in question is a space (x'40)?

The field is defined as 500000 char ccsid(1208).

Is there a limit on this base64_decode function? It uses pointers and I
can't find anything else in there that is defined as 65335 bytes.
