Alternative to UUENCODE in linux

In my linux system, UUENCODE command is not available. I need to send the log file as an attachement. Is there any other way to do so?

Please state your Operating System and version, and identify your mail client. An example of how you send a mail without an attachment helps.

Just on the offchance. Program "uuencode" is lower case.

To check whether "uuencode" is available:
Code:
type uuencode
whence uuencode
