in reply to Question about base64 encoded attributes with Net::LDAP::LDIF

When i need this i use https://metacpan.org/pod/MIME::Base64. As in

use MIME::Base64; $buf='Authorization: Basic '.encode_base64($args{user}.':'.$args{passw +ord},'');
Note the second parm of the empty string.
Pass an empty string as second argument if you do not want the encoded string to be broken into lines.

    well, yes I could manually do it myself but was hoping I could to this within the LDIF module since all I'm doing is 'read entry -> remove unneeded attributes -> write entry' and not touching most of the attributes in the entry.
