Subject [jira] [Created] (CODEC-185) Base64 user-facing docs should say that decode can handle URL Safe encoding
Date Sat, 10 May 2014 21:57:35 GMT
Sean Busbey created CODEC-185:
---------------------------------

             Summary: Base64 user-facing docs should say that decode can handle URL Safe encoding
                 Key: CODEC-185
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-185
             Project: Commons Codec
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.9, 1.8, 1.7, 1.6, 1.5, 1.4
            Reporter: Sean Busbey
            Priority: Minor


Base64 has static methods specific to doing URLSafe encoding, but has no corresponding URLSafe
decoding method.

This is be cause the decoding table transparently handles both URLSafe and standard alphabets.
Unfortunately this is only documented as a javadoc on a private member.

There should be a mention of it

* In the class javadocs
* on the static decode methods
* on the static URLSafe encode methods
