Looking at the source code for those functions might tell you why you get
different outputs. The python code for base64 is in /Lib. Those two
functions are thin wrappers around corresponding C-coded binascii
functions. You can access that module via this source tree directory:
The current binascii code is
The interpreter is open source with a liberal license that should allow you
to pluck the functions for use elsewhere as long as the add a copyright
Otherwise, I agree with Diez that this is OT here.
