var buf = encoding.decode(link)
console.log('%s -> %s', link, buf)
console.log('%s -> %s', buf, encoding.encode(buf))

API

.encode(buf)

.toStr(buf)

Encode buf into a hex string. Throws if buf isn't 32 bytes of length.
If buf is already a string, checks if it's valid and returns it.

.toBuf(str)

Decode str into its binary representation. Also supports dat:// and dat.com/ links. Throws if the raw link isn't 64 bytes of base64.
If str is already a buffer, checks if it's valid and returns it.
