Synopsis

                   ToBase64(value)

Base64 encodes a binary object or string. Base64 is an encoding scheme that uses printable characters to represent binary data. Base64 is typically used to encode binary data before it is sent via email or stored in a database. Here’s an example that reads in a binary file using cffile and encodes it using ToBase64( ):

<cffile action="ReadBinary" FILE="D:/mydir/myfile.gif" VARIABLE="MyBinaryFile">
   
<cfset MyBase64 = ToBase64(MyBinaryFile)>
   
<cfoutput>Base64: #MyBase64#</cfoutput>
