NAME

       libssh2_base64_decode - decode a base64 encoded string

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       int libssh2_base64_decode(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session, char **dest,
                                 unsigned int *dest_len, const char *src,
                                 unsigned int src_len);

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  is deemed DEPRECATED and will be removed from libssh2 in a future version.
       Don't use it!

       Decode a base64 chunk and store it into a newly allocated buffer. 'dest_len' will  be  set
       to hold the length of the returned buffer that '*dest' will point to.

       The  returned  buffer  is allocated by this function, but it is not clear how to free that
       memory!

BUGS

       The memory that *dest points to is allocated by the  malloc  function  libssh2  uses,  but
       there's no way for an application to free this data in a safe and reliable way!

RETURN VALUE

       0 if successful, -1 if any error occurred.
