uuencode

Encode binary files into ASCII for transport via mediums that only support simple ASCII encoding.

TLDR

Encode a file and print the result to stdout

$ uuencode [path/to/input_file] [output_file_name_after_decoding]
copy

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]
copy

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]
copy
