GNU sharutils

https://www.gnu.org/software/sharutils/
Creates and helps unpack shell archives.

Sharutils is a package for creating and manipulating shell archives that can be readily emailed. A shell archive is a file that can be processed by a Bourne-type shell to unpack the original collection of files.

This package consists of two pairs of utilities: shar and unshar, and uuencode and uudecode:

Shar & unshar

Shar makes so-called shell archives out of many files, preparing them for transmission by electronic mail services (converting binary data to ASCII representations, breaking the text into multiple shar scripts, etc.). Unshar is the safe way to extract and reassemble the original files. It will automatically strip off the mail headers and other introductory text.

Uuencode & uudecode

Uuencode and uudecode are programs that convert binary files into ascii text so that the original data can pass through the email system without having intermediate hosts "fixing" the files en route.
