Example #1 :
In this example we can see that by using base64.decodestring(s) method, we are able to get the decoded string which can be in binary form by using this method.




# import base64
from base64 import encodestring
from base64 import decodestring
  
s = b'GeeksForGeeks'
s = encodestring(s)
# Using base64.decodestring(s) method
gfg = decodestring(s)
  
print(gfg)

Output :

b’GeeksForGeeks’

Example #2 :




# import base64
from base64 import encodestring
from base64 import decodestring
  
s = b'Hello World'
s = encodestring(s)
# Using base64.decodestring(s) method
