Convert::UU(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	Convert::UU(3)

NAME
       Convert::UU, uuencode, uudecode - Perl module for uuencode and uudecode

SYNOPSIS
	 use Convert::UU qw(uudecode uuencode);
	 $encoded_string = uuencode($string,[$filename],[$mode]);
	 ($string,$filename,$mode) = uudecode($string);
	 $string = uudecode($string); #	in scalar context

DESCRIPTION
       o   uuencode

	   uuencode() takes as the first argument a string that	is to be
	   uuencoded. Note, that it is the string that is encoded, not a
	   filename. Alternatively a filehandle	may be passed that must	be
	   opened for reading. It returns the uuencoded	string including
	   "begin" and "end". Second and third argument	are optional and
	   specify filename and	mode. If unspecified these default to
	   "uuencode.uu" and 644.

       o   uudecode

	   uudecode() takes a string as	argument which will be uudecoded. If
	   the argument	is a filehandle	this handle will be read instead. If
	   it is a reference to	an ARRAY, the elements are treated like	lines
	   that	form a string. Leading and trailing garbage will be ignored.
	   The function	returns	the uudecoded string for the first begin/end
	   pair. In array context it returns an	array whose first element is
	   the uudecoded string, the second is the filename and	the third is
	   the mode.

EXPORT
       Both uudecode and uuencode are in @EXPORT_OK.
