If you want to send a binary file via email to someone, you must
first convert it with uuencode.
How to use uuencode:
How to use uudecode:
- If you have received a uuencoded document via email, save it to a file.
(Within Pine, type "e" and Pine will prompt you for a file name.)
where filename is the name of the file to be decoded.
- You should now find the decoded file there. Type "ls" to get a listing
of your files.
* A note to Macintosh users: if you use the Fetch program to transfer
your files onto your wjh account, it will ask you what format to use.
From the pulldown menu next to Format:, select BinHex. "BinHex"
accomplishes the same thing as uuencode, that is to say, it prepares a
binary file for transmission. It's the Macintosh way of doing it.
Thus, you won't have to uuencode the file.
