Not Ascii, Hex, Oct or unicode


Hi Guys,

I know this is a linux forum but since most of you guys are programmers I thought I'd ask... I'm wondering how I can decode the following message:

PFXXKIPFXX======

I tried using base32 & 64 but nothing.

This is not homework.

Thanks!!!

I have no idea.

Are you sure it's supposed to decode into text?

Thanks MTK358 for your response. Yeah, it should decode to text. I tried Base32/64 and unicode but nothing.

But you said you tried BASE32!?!

Anyway, mark the thread as solved.
