Decoding uuencoded files

An encoded file can be sent by mail to a user on another host. They can then save the file and restore the original binary file using the uudecode command. For example:

   uudecode filename

The recreated binary file is placed in a file with the name given as the file_label for the encoded file. It will have the same ownership and access permissions as the original file.
