uuencode - Windows command-line utility to encode a given binary file
uuencode [file] decodePathname
The uuencode(1w) Windows utility writes an encoded version of the named input file (or standard input if no file is specified).
The file is expanded by 35 percent (each three octets become four, plus control information), causing it to take a longer time to transmit.
The output from uuencode is a text file on the local system. The encoding algorithm is described in terms of eight-bit quantities, or octets. Because no byte alignment is implied, it encodes data from machines with any number of bits per byte. Unless that encoded data is decoded on a computer with the same number of bits per byte, however, the output might not be useful.
The uuencode utility supports the following argument:
Possible exit-status values are:
