Examples sample code invoking the binaryEncode function

use binaryEncode to Encode with hex

s = binaryDecode('s = binaryDecode('737472696E67','hex');
 binaryEncode(s,'hex');

Expected Result: 737472696E67

use binaryEncode to Encode with UNIX UUencode (UU)

s = binaryDecode('&<W1R:6YG','UU');
 binaryEncode(s,'UU');

Expected Result: string

use binaryEncode to Encode with base64

s = binaryDecode('s = binaryDecode('&<W1R:6YG','base64');
 binaryEncode(s,'base64');
