uuencode

Encode binary files into ASCII for transport via mediums that only support simple ASCII encoding. More information: https://manned.org/uuencode.

  • Encode a file and print the result to stdout:

uuencode {{path/to/input_file}} {{output_file_name_after_decoding}}

  • Encode a file and and write the result to a file:

uuencode -o {{path/to/output_file}} {{path/to/input_file}} {{output_file_name_after_decoding}}

  • Encode a file using Base64 instead of the default uuencode encoding and and write the result to a file:

uuencode -m -o {{path/to/output_file}} {{path/to/input_file}} {{output_file_name_after_decoding}}
