Base64 encoding/decoding


I have a problem by converting a string to base64 and back again.

I have a string with german special chars like .

This string i convert with base64str=base6 4.encode('' ) into a base64 representation.

Backwards I got an error:
binascii.Error: Incorrect padding

I use base64.decode(b ase64str).

The charset I use is iso-iso-8859-1.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there somewhere a good tutorial bei encoding and decoding with different charsets?
I get text from different sources and i have to decode it and convert it at the end to utf-8.

encode you string in utf
lol=''.deco de('iso-8859-1').encode('UTF 8') '\xc3\xa4\xc3\x b6\xc3\xbc\xc3\ x9f' base64.decodest ring(base64.enc odestring(lol))

'\xc3\xa4\xc3\x b6\xc3\xbc\xc3\ x9f

this should work

I have encoded a string into Base64 for the purpose of encryption. I then later decrypted it and converted it back from Base64 the final string returns with four nothing characters.
