The only reason to use uuencode is to mail a non-text file: either an executable file (an application of some kind) or a file in a format like regular Wordperfect (not ASCII). If you have something like a Wordperfect document that you want to e-mail to somebody without losing features like underlining, you can uuencode it. The person who receives it uudecodes it and has the full-featured document, not an ASCII version. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
