Uuencode example

Uuencode and uudecode are software utilities that encode or decode files with Unix-to-Unix encoding, also known as uuencoding. Uuencoded files may be transmitted over text-only communications protocols, enabling binary data like software, images, and video to be transmitted by e-mail, IRC, or newsgroups. The binary data is converted to ASCII for transmission, and then from ASCII back to binary when the data is received.
