Base64 encode Latin 1 string

The app below base64 encodes a Latin 1 string. It seems unaesthetic to first convert to TBytes and then to TIdBytes to be able to call TIdEncoderMIME.EncodeBytes. Is there a simpler way to do this? This is for Delphi XE6 Update 1.

{$apptype console}
program TestEncode;

   System.SysUtils, IdCoder, IdCoderMIME, IdGlobal;

   ISO_8859_1_Code_Page  = 28591;

   ISO_8859_1_String = type AnsiString( ISO_8859_1_Code_Page );

function Encoded( const S: string ): string;

// MIME encode the ISO 8859-1 (Latin 1) string.

   B1: TBytes;
   B2: TIdBytes;
   J:  integer;


   B1 := BytesOf( ISO_8859_1_String( S ) );
   setlength( B2, length( B1 ) );

   for J := low( B1 ) to high( B1 ) do
      B2[ J ] := B1[ J ];

   result := TIdEncoderMIME.EncodeBytes( B2 );


   S: string;


   S := 'ÀÁÂÃÄÅÇÈÉÊËÌÍÎÏÑÒÓÔÕÖØÙÚÛÜÝàáâãäåçèéêëìíîïñòóôõöøùúûüýÿ';
   writeln( Encoded( S ) );

TBytes and TIdBytes are both dynamic arrays, so you can use a type-cast to 
avoid the extra conversion:

function Encoded(const S: string): string;
  PIdBytes = ^TIdBytes;
  B: TBytes;
  B := BytesOf(ISO_8859_1_String(S));
  Result := TIdEncoderMIME.EncodeBytes(PIdBytes(@B)^);

A better option is to use EncodeString() instead and let Indy handle the 
byte conversion for you:

function Encoded(const S: string): string;
  Result := TIdEncoderMIME.EncodeString(S, IndyTextEncoding(28591));

To Encode String or to Not Encode String... Answer?
I am importing a CSV file from a Unix server as a string, and then saving the string into a new file for later processing.  However, this process does not always work.  As this CSV file is VERY, VERY large, I am unable to immediately tell if the fault lies with my code, or the CSV file provider (very possible).  The only time I can tell that this happened is when the data is not populated the next morning.  The fault appears to lie in there being extra or missing commas, as when I try to run the data import manually, STRINGs are attempted to be inserted into INT...

I would also like to know if the string freeze is going to be simultaneous for all three, or not?

getting base64 encoded string using IdHttp
yes hello good to be back... so i have written a REST server in PHP to talk to my IdHttp client that base64 encodes a jpeg in order to send the data in a record "packet" of my own design. I then use a TStringList.delimitedText to read the received packet and parse the results into key/value pairs (kind of a homestyle JSON format). this is working well for all the other data, but it seems that the base64 field is being limited to 4096 bytes when i call the RawByteString thumb64 := tsServerReply.Values['base64field']; the original 'base64field' i...

Encode string to html string
I need to convert a text string ("Dewey & Cheatham & Howe") to an XML encoded string ("Dewey & Cheatham & Howe"). I am not building an XML document, I am just trying to convert a single string. I have looked at the System.Xml namespace, but I can't quite find what I need. XmlTextWriter.WriteString() does the type of encoding I need, but it writes the string. I just want it to return the encoded string. Can someone tell me the class and method I need? Thanks. Pro LINQ: Language Integrated Query in C# 2008http://www.linqdev.com

[PATCH] string encoding for ISO 8859-1
--=-ksx2LhHNUfK9y24TTmGu Content-Type: text/plain Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit All -- My computer uses the ISO8859-1 encoding natively, and I figure we eventually want to be able to transode from whatever the specific native encoding is to Unicode. So, I copied strnative.* and did some basic editing to produce striso8859_1.*. The problem is, what I've done really doesn't deal with the issues. I may be misunderstanding, but I think 'strnative' needs to go away and we need to determine the precise native encoding, and call the string encodings what they are....
