Base cryptographic functions provide the most flexible means 
of developing cryptography applications. All communication 
with a cryptographic service provider (CSP) occurs through 
these functions.
 
A CSP is an independent module that performs all cryptographic 
operations. At least one CSP is required with each application 
that uses cryptographic functions. A single application can 
occasionally use more than one CSP.

My comment:
In VFP8 base64 conversion is normally performed with STRCONV().

In my tests, API routines presented on this page encoded and decoded strings approximately 2 times faster than STRCONV() did -- on 100K cycles 3.7 seconds vs. 7.7 seconds.

* * *
This is an output from call to CryptBinaryToString with dwFlags set to CRYPT_STRING_HEXASCIIADDR (0x000b). Can make a good starting point for programming a simple binary viewer.

From Burkhard Stiller`s VFP Blog:
Another way to encode and store picture-data inside your classes -- relates to base64 encoding, and is an interesting sample of code by itself.
