Usually used for transmitting binary files inside an email. Files of this type are usually given an extension of .uue. Warning UUencoded text may be corrupted when passing over a mainframe mail gateway. To avoid corruption, use Mime Base 64 or XXEncode.
UUEncoding's major drawback is that there are many flavors of uuencode in existence and this plays against interoperability. Gateways that convert between EBCDIC and ASCII, furthermore, may damage some of the characters used in the uuencode format. The base64 encoding is designed to be invulnerable to all known gateways. The UUencoding implemented by TextPipe uses the following characters:
Text that has been processed with the UUEncode filter usually looks like the following:
