Bug#640110: ITP: ruby-ascii85 -- Ruby library to encode/decode the Ascii85 format

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Cédric Boutillier" <cedric.boutillier@gmail.com>

This library is one of the dependencies of a new version of
libprawn-ruby (soon to be renamed ruby-prawn). It is therefore needed to
get a newer version of ruby-prawn into Debian. 

* Package name    : ruby-ascii85
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : Johannes Hozfuß
* URL             : http://rubyforge.org/projects/ascii85/

  Programming Lang: Ruby
  Description     : Ruby library to encode/decode the Ascii85 format

Ascii85 (also called "Base85") is a form of binary-to-text encoding, wich is
mainly used in Adobe's PostScript and PDF format. This package provides a
ruby library to encode/decode Ascii85.

It ships also a command line utility, which can encode/decode files to the
standard output.

Best wishes,
