I have a function that expects a string with some special characters (tabs, spaces, line feeds, etc.)

I have an XML document that I'm retrieving from a web service which contains this data.  The data is in a base64 format because of the validation issues with xml, of course.  I can get the base64 string in to a variable.  how can I convert this string to base32 so that I can pass it off to my function?

Why do you need to convert to base32? Why not just decode it from base64?

This is the general idea:

InputStream is=connection.getInputStream();
FileOutputStream fos= ...;
new sun.misc.BASE64Decoder().decodeBuffer(is,fos);

Is there a way to do it without interacting with the filesystem?  This is a multi-threaded server component on a web server.

Can you show me how you're getting the XML doc in the first place?

Never mind, I got off of my lazy a** and wrote a function to take care of it myself.  

Thanks for the help, though.  I'll give you the points
