uudeview is an invaluable GPL'ed filter for decoding any
sort of encoding from mail or news.  It's relatively small,
source is 260K. The home page is at
The decoder automatically detects the type of encoding used,
offering MIME Base64 and BinHex as well as the popular
uuencoding and the less frequently used xxencoding methods.

I would hope RedHat would seriously consider adding this
useful package to their next release.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-25 03:19:59 UTC
