Perl5 module for uuencode and uudecode

SYNOPSIS use ConvertUU qwuudecode uuencode; $encoded_string = uuencode$string,[$filename],[$mode]; $string,$filename,$mode = uudecode$string; $string = uudecode$string; # in scalar context

DESCRIPTION uuencode takes as the first argument a scalar that is to be uuencoded. 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 will be
   read instead. 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.
