ConvertFrom-MemoryStream -MemoryStream <MemoryStream[]> [-Encoding <String>] [-ToString] [<CommonParameters>]

ToBase64

ConvertFrom-MemoryStream -MemoryStream <MemoryStream[]> [-Encoding <String>] [-ToBase64] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

Converts MemoryStream to a base64 encoded string.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

$string = 'A string'
$stream = [System.IO.MemoryStream]::new()
$writer = [System.IO.StreamWriter]::new($stream)
$writer.Write($string)
$writer.Flush()

ConvertFrom-MemoryStream -MemoryStream $stream -ToBase64

$stream = [System.IO.MemoryStream]::new()
$writer = [System.IO.StreamWriter]::new($stream)
$writer.Write($string)
$writer.Flush()

$stream | ConvertFrom-MemoryStream -ToBase64

EXAMPLE 3

$string1 = 'A string'
$stream1 = [System.IO.MemoryStream]::new()
$writer1 = [System.IO.StreamWriter]::new($stream1)
$writer1.Write($string1)
$writer1.Flush()

$string2 = 'Another string'
$stream2 = \[System.IO.MemoryStream\]::new()
$writer2 = \[System.IO.StreamWriter\]::new($stream2)
$writer2.Write($string2)
$writer2.Flush()
