Hello experts,

This may be in the wrong group, but I have an HL7 message that contains "base64 encoded pdf encapsulated in the message".  I have attached the sample below.  

Are there any programs that can convert the binary data into PDF, or any scripts anyone has come across that might help?

Thanks!

Download Notepad++ and install it.

Open Notepad++

Copy / paste the encoded text there

TextFX - TextFX tools there are bunch of options there to convert from base-64.

Or look for something called "uudecode" command line tool and use that tool to generate the .pdf file.

Or post the encoded file as an attachment here and someone will decode it for you.
