encode

 

 

Description

The encode function calls the compress function, to convert a Byte Vector, String, or Symbol into a much smaller Byte Vector. Then the encode function uses the specified key to encode the compressed byte vector. The same key must also be passed to the decode function to reconstruct the data.

When to use

The encode function is used to convert a Byte Vector, String, or Symbol into a much smaller Byte Vector.

 

Syntax

(encode input key)



Name Description AIS Types
inputThe Byte Vector, String, or Symbol to be compressed and then encoded.ByteVector String Symbol
keyThe Number key to use for encoding (must be the same key used for later decoding).Number


Returns:

A Byte Vector (compressed).
