btoa

Convert binary to ascii and vice versa

Btoa converts 4 binary characters to 5 ascii ones, causing a 25% expansion. Spaces will not be used, which should make it safe to send files over Usenet without risking that blanks become tabs.

Patch 1 is an unofficial, non-platform-specific patch to version
5.2 of btoa.  It allows for automatic decoding of btoa files if
the program is invoked as "atob" (no -a argument necessary).  It
also outfits the Makefile to do clean and install.
