uue, uuencode - encode a binary file to ASCII (e.g., for mailing) SYNOPSIS
uue [-n] file [-] OPTIONS
-n How many lines to put in each file EXAMPLES
uue file # Encode file to file.uue uue file - >x # Encode file and write on stdout uue -800 file # Output on file.uaa, file.uab etc. DESCRIPTION
Uuencode is a famous program that converts an arbitrary (usually binary) file to an encoding using only 64 ASCII characters. Uudecode con- verts it back to the original file. The uue and uud programs are the MINIX versions of these programs, and are compatible with the UNIX ones. The files produced can even be sent successfully over BITNET, which is notorious for mangling files. It is possible to have uue automatically split the encoded file up into small chunks. The output files then get the suffixes .uaa, .uab, etc., instead of .uue. When uud is given file.uaa to decode, it automatically includes the subsequent pieces. The encoding takes 3 bytes (24 bits) from the input file and renders it as 4 bytes in the output file. SEE ALSO

gather - gather up the files in a directory for transmission SYNOPSIS
gather [-s] source_dir [-d] dest_dir [-b] bytes [-f] file OPTIONS
-b Desired number of bytes per output file -d Destination directory -f Base name of output files -s Source directory EXAMPLES
gather # Collect files in current dir into 60K archives gather -d dir # Put the archives in dir gather -b 90000 # Try to produce 90K archives gather -s .. -d targ -b 5000 # Try to produce 5K archives DESCRIPTION
It is often useful to collect all the files in a directory into one or more archives for transmission by mail. This program collects all the files in the source directory (default: current directory) and puts them into a shar archive. The shar archive is then compressed and uuencoded. An attempt is made to have the final .uue file be about the given size (default: 60K), but since gather cannot really predict how much shar will add to the file, how much compress will reduce the file, and how much uue will add again, the sizes can fluctuate. If the -f file flag is given, the archives will be given the names file_00.uue, file_01.uue etc. If -f is not given, the name of the source directory is used as the base name. Since 7 characters of suffix are appended, the base name should not exceed 7 characters. GATHER(1)
