  Description     : Encoding and decoding of ascii85/base85 strings

Convert::Ascii85 implements the Ascii85 (also known as Base85)
algorithm for encoding binary data as text. This is done by
interpreting each group of four bytes as a 32-bit integer, which is
then converted to a five-digit base-85 representation using the digits
from ASCII 33 (!) to 117 (u).

This is similar to MIME::Base64 but more space efficient: The overhead
is only 1/4 of the original data (as opposed to 1/3 for Base64).
