GNU sharutils

https://www.gnu.org/s/sharutils/
Sharutils consists of two shell archiving utilities: "shar" and "unshar." "shar" makes shell archives out of many files and preps them for transmission by email. A shell archive is a collection of files that can be unpacked by /bin/sh. Among other things, the program can compress files, uuencode binary files, split long files and construct multi-part mailings, ensure correct unsharing order, and provide simplistic checksums. "unshar" scans mail archives, looks for the start of shell archives, and automatically strips off headers and other introductory text. The bodies of the messages are then unpacked by a copy of the shell; the program may also process files containing linked shell archives.
