I'm not sure about other kinds of computers. And I've never used it on my PC since I find it just as easy to use it online and then download the uudecoded files. Uuencode doesn't compress the file, so you're not shortening your download time by waiting to uudecode it on your PC. The only reason for using uuencode is to be able to send binary files via e-mail. You can send a program or a Wordperfect document or whatever if the person receiving it also has uuencode/decode. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
