Decoder and encoder for Base64 (MIME), uuencoded, xxencoded and Binhex files
'UUDeview', a package consisting of a very smart decoder and an encoder for Base64 (MIME), uuencoded, xxencoded and Binhex files. Its goal is to fully replace the "standard" but dumb uudecode and uuencode utilities. The package features a smart decoder, UUDeview, which reads in files, sorts the individual postings or emails, and lets you pick which files to decode. It also includes UUEnview, which encodes binaries for sending and automatically sends them. The decoder supports uuencoding, xxencoding, Base64 (MIME), and BinHex. It can encode to all of them except BinHex. You choose the encoding methods you want via command line options, and the decoder auto-detects them all. The frontend programs are built around a powerful decoding library, which can be integrated into other applications.
