Is there PV-Wave function which does convertions to base64, the convert_base only converts up to base32.

Thanks
Ash

Hi Ash,
We already have a couple of defects filed against convert_base. One of them is that it only handles 32 bit numbers.

A clarification to the previous comments...

There are two CRs filed on CONVERT_BASE:

1) 001-00-017294 - Pertains to a specific case: trying to convert a single hex value to another base.

2) 001-00-017327 - An enhancement request to support 64-bit values

Thus, in my opinion, CONVERT_BASE is perfectly reliable to use with the caveat that there is a known bug if trying to convert a single, as opposed to an array of, hex values to another base.
