  Description     : module to shorten numbers using a base58 conversion

 Encode::Base58 permits one to encode and decode numbers using a base58
 conversion. It differs from a base64 conversion by having confusing
 (0, O, l and I) and non alpha-numeric ( + and /) characters removed.
 
 It is used by Flickr for its URL shortener and in Bitcoin addresses.

 This module is a requirement in Flickr::API2 that I plan to package.

 I will package it within the Debian Perl Team.
