Perl extension for base 85 numbers, as referenced by RFC 1924
RFC 1924 describes a compact, fixed-size representation of IPv6 addresses which uses a base 85 number system. This module handles some of the uglier details of it.
The base 85 numbers from 0 to 84 are as follows
0..9 A..Z a..z ! # $ & * + - ; < = > ? @ ^ _ ` | ~
At the moment, there’s not much in this module. But it should be sufficient for the purposes of RFC 1924.
