+The EVP encode routines provide a high-level interface to base 64 encoding and
decoding. Base 64 encoding converts binary data into a printable form that uses
the characters A-Z, a-z, 0-9, "+" and "/" to represent the data. For every 3

EVP_EncodeBlock() encodes a full block of input data in B<f> and of length
-B<dlen> and stores it in B<t>. For every 3 bytes of input provided 4 bytes of

encoded as a final block of data and the output is padded such that it is always
divisible by 4. Additionally a NUL terminator character will be added. For
