+7PLUS is an encoder vaguely similar to Unix's UUENCODE.
+It uses a very effective radix216 encoding and incorporates
+diverse mechanisms to ensure decoded data is not corrupted.
+It also includes an interactive repair mechanism which allows
+the repair of damaged files using correction files, thus
+eliminating the need to retransmit entire files. In case of
+a corruption, only the faulty sections are resent. 7PLUS
+is only meant to be used within the Packet Radio network
+for the tranport of binary data through Packet Radio mail.
+It cannot be used for Internet eMail since it needs a
+(almost) transparent path from end to end.
+This will not build on x86_84, patches welcome.
