uuencode  
uudecode Encodes a binary file.
Decodes a binary file.  
uuencode [<file>] <name>  
uudecode [<file> …]  
uuencode and uudecode are used to transmit binary files over transmission mediums that only support simple ASCII data.
uuencode reads <file> (or by default the standard input) and writes an encoded version to the standard output. The encoding uses only printing ASCII characters and includes the mode of the file and the operand <name> for use by uudecode.
uudecode transforms uuencoded files (or by default the standard input) into the original form. The resulting file is named <name> and has the mode of the original file except that setuid and execute bits are not retained. uudecode ignores any leading and trailing lines.
