I'm not sure what your point is here?

I mean, we could all go and dig up links to base64 encoders and decoders, but the article you're commenting on is specifically about how fast they've been able to get using vector instructions on modern processors.

They provide an optimized non-SIMD generic implementation. The version I posted is similar, speed-wise, and it supports in-place base64 encoding/decoding (i.e. allowing aliasing, supporting the case of using one buffer for both input and output).
