SYNOPSIS¶ascii85 [OPTIONS] FILES
DESCRIPTION¶Ascii85 (also called "Base85") is a form of binary-to-text encoding, which is mainly used in Adobe's PostScript and PDF format.
ascii85 is a command line utility, modeled after base64(1) from the GNU coreutils, can encode text files to Ascii85 or decode Ascii85 files to text, and then print the result to the standard output.
If no file is given on the command line, ascii85 reads from the standard input.
