I'd use the code to create a form that you'd use once in a while to 
create the ascii encoded bits. This is better that doing it 'inline' as
1. it doesn't have to be used on a php page
2. your server isn't doing the same bit of work every time.

If all you want is the output, just use the form on my page above.
