Any existing documentation will be found in the serialization library under Dataflow iterators.

This problem has been reported. I haven't found the time to investigate the best way to fix it.

Note that there are tests in the serialization library for this facility and all the dataflow iterators.
Investigating these might shed some light on things.

  Is there any possibility that we can extend this and use it for any data?

  Also does anyone know where is the documentation for both transform_width and base64 iterator where I can find their usage? I struggled a lot to get this example working.

  I reported this problem a few months ago - apparently it is a feature that this only works on input data that is a multiple of 3 bytes long

  I am using this sample to prove myself that base64_from_binary and binary_from_base64 can be used in my app. But I am having little problem and not able to understand whats missing


  Here is the sample


  #include "boost/archive/iterators/base64_from_binary.hpp"

  #include "boost/archive/iterators/binary_from_base64.hpp"

  #include "boost/archive/iterators/transform_width.hpp"

  #include <string>

  #include <iostream>

  using namespace std;

  using namespace boost::archive::iterators;



  transform_width<std::string::iterator, 6, sizeof(char) * 8>

> base64_t;



  binary_from_base64<std::string::iterator>, sizeof(char) * 8, 6

> binary_t;

  int main()


  string str = "Hello, world!";

  cout << str << endl;

  string enc(base64_t(str.begin()), base64_t(str.end())); // Problem here. It works when I specify "str.end()-1" instead of "str.end()" but I loose last character after decoding.

  cout << enc << endl;

  string dec(binary_t(enc.begin()), binary_t(enc.end()));

  cout << dec << endl;

  return 0;


  Will appreciate any help. I tried std::copy as well and have same problem.
