puudecode: perl replacement for uudecode
puudecode - perl replacement for uudecode
DESCRIPTIONUudecode reads a uuencoded inputfile and writes the decoded string to the file named in the uuencoded string. It changes the permissions to the mode given in the uuencoded string.
BUGSThis implementation is much slower than most uudecode programs written in C. Its primary intention is to allow quick testing of the underlying Convert::UU module.
