Subject [jira] [Commented] (CODEC-234) Base32.decode should support lowercase letters
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 20:30:04 GMT

Gary Gregory commented on CODEC-234:
------------------------------------

Hi All,

I'm OK with making the mappings {{0-O 1-I}} optional. I'd like community feedback on what
the default should be.

> Base32.decode accepts a String input, but any lowercase characters are ignored -- e.g.
Base32.decode("abcd2345") will give a different result than Base32.decode("ABCD1234") with
no errors and a surprise to a developer.
> Accepting any case is desirable, as RFC 4648 makes it clear that case-insensitivity is
a goal for Base32 encoding.
