Ruby's standard module "Base64"

Hi All,

Could anyone help me here to understand when we need to consider the
below 4 methods:

strict_decode64(str)
strict_encode64(bin)
urlsafe_encode64(bin)
urlsafe_decode64(str)

From the doc also I didn’t get any examples. So examples with
explanation might be helpful for me to understand.

Thanks in advance

I would suggest “creating” as it were your own examples using irb.

I’d start by encoding a string, then decoding that result, eg.

001> x = strict_encode64(‘hello’)
002> strict_decode64(x)
etc.

Sent from my phone, so excuse the typos.

ri strict_decode64
then go read RFC 4648

rinse, repeat.

Try `ri Base64’, there are examples.

And if you do not have any clue for what purpose you would use
those methods then you probably can just ignore them.
