the package chewingum contains two main programs:
They have been implemented in perl and in java.
chew has been written to shorten long decimal integer numbers into base62 strings.
It's not a mere base conversion, because it doesn't use arithmetic inside its logic.
In this way it can convert very long numbers into strings quickly,
the base62 program has been written to encode/decode files
into this format.
The syntax is similar to the popular base64 command line program.
Inside the package there is also a draft for a c# implementation of the base62 algorithm.
chew and base62 have been ported to java too.
the sources are inside the package.
