I use perl to encode a file to base64 and send it as a post request.
How can I convert back to a file on the php server side?
I'm using the code igniter framework in case there are existing functions you might know of

The POST request information will probably be found in $_POST on the PHP side of things.  Can you give us an example to test with?  Thanks, ~Ray
