Hi there, In reading the documentation to MIME::Base64::URLSafe, I noticed it says: "Perl version of Python's URL-safe base64 codec" However, this statement is a bit misleading since the Python version does not drop trailing equals signs. Python documentation for 2.5 instead says: "urlsafe_b64encode(s) Encode string s using a URL-safe alphabet, which substitutes - instead of + and _ instead of / in the standard Base64 alphabet." for example: Show quoted text
>>> import base64 >>> base64.urlsafe_b64encode
<function urlsafe_b64encode at 0xb7ef5e64> Show quoted text
>>> base64.urlsafe_b64encode('Hello World')
