Is there a recommended approach to doing base64 decoding from ACUCOBOL? I do have a few ideas in mind, including calling functions from either OpenSSL or MSXML. But the boss is asking for a second opinion.
Our preference would be for a shared library routine as opposed to a standalone utility. Our platforms include both Linux and Windows.
RE: base64 decoding
We have no user-callable standard routines for doing this. I believe we have some internal routines (because config variables and ActiveX resources sometimes need them). But these are not exposed as something users can call from COBOL.
