Description

Decode a base 64 string.
This is for text only. Data encoded as base64 would probably be truncated as FileMaker texts do not contain NULL bytes.

Examples

Decode Base64 as UTF-8:

MBS( "Text.DecodeFromBase64"; "R3LDvMOfIEdvdHQuIFRlc3Qg4pi6"; "utf8" )

Example result: "Grüß Gott. Test ☺"
