./converters/p5-MIME-Base64, Perl5 module for Base64 and Quoted-Printable encodings

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.15nb3, Package name: p5-MIME-Base64-3.15nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This package contains a base64 encoder/decoder and a quoted-printable
encoder/decoder. These encoding methods are specified in RFC 2045 -
MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions).

The base64 encoding is designed to represent arbitrary sequences of
octets in a form that need not be humanly readable. A 65-character
subset ([A-Za-z0-9+/=]) of US-ASCII is used, enabling 6 bits to be
represented per printable character.

The quoted-printable encoding is intended to represent data that
largely consists of bytes that correspond to printable characters in
the ASCII character set. Non-printable characters are represented by
a triplet consisting of the character "=" followed by two hexadecimal
digits.

The MIME::Base64 and MIME::QuotedPrint modules used to be part of
libwww-perl package. They are now distributed separately (this
package). The main improvement is that the base64 encoder/decoder is
implemented by XS functions. This makes it about 20 times faster than
the old implementation in perl.

Do it for all packages that

* depend on a package starting with p5-
like last time, for 5.18, where this didn't lead to complaints.
Let me know if you have any this time.
