Hi Bob,
Could you explain a bit more on this? How do I use/configure base64?
Any document/example do you have?

To Narendra;

I get the idea that this line of inquiry is designed to obfuscate R
code and derivative works, which in turn I see as an effort to defeat
the open source nature of the R movement. It at least violates the
spirit of the various licenses under which R and the CRAN packaging
policies are distributed.

I'm suggesting that those people who support an open source basis of
not continue to use Rhelp as a venue for an effort to undermine the
openness of coding supported by R. If Bob disagrees with me, he is at
liberty to correspond with you privately. I have no authority to enforce
such advice, and anyone is free to opine on the ethics and legality of
this proposed effort.

I concur with David completely.
