Convert::UU -- Perl module for uuencode and uudecode
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.
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.
