  • Hex: use the characters 0-9 and A-F to represent the hexadecimal value of each byte.
  • UU: use the UNIX UUencode algorithm to convert the data
  • Base64: use the Base64 algorithm to convert the data, as specified by IETF RFC 2045, at


base_64 = ToBase64("I am a string.");
binary_data = ToBinary(base_64);
dump(BinaryEncode(binary_data, "hex")); // 4920616D206120737472696E672E
