11.20.4 Binary Objects
This class may initialized from string data (which may include NULs). The primary acess to
the content of a Binary object is provided by an attribute:
- The binary data encapsulated by the Binary instance. The data is
provided as an 8-bit string.
Binary objects have the following methods, supported mainly for
internal use by the marshalling/unmarshalling code:
- Accept a base64 string and decode it as the instance's new data.
- Write the XML-RPC base 64 encoding of this binary item to the out stream object.
It also supports certain of Python's built-in operators through a _cmp__()
