-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Make possible to provide padding byte to BaseNCodec in constructor
                 Key: CODEC-181
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-181
             Project: Commons Codec
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.9, 1.10
            Reporter: Ivan Martinez-Ortiz
            Priority: Minor


Hi,

I'm developing an application that generates QRCodes, so the user does not need to type a
HMAC value. QRCodes [1] supports different encoding formats, in particular the alpha numeric
format is almost compatible with the Base32 (the only problematic character is the '=' character).

I created an almost exact copy of Base32 class in order to change the padding byte, however
the BaseNCodec#PAD byte is final and not settable in the class constructor.

I already tested this approach and I can provide a patch to support this new feature.
