(Originally distributed as "mmencode"). A replacement for
uuencode for use in electronic mail and news. Part of
MIME. uuencode uses characters that don"t translate well
across all mail gateways (particularly those which convert
between ASCII and EBCDIC). Also, different variants of
uuencode encode data in different and incompatible ways, with
no standard. Finally, few uuencode variants work well in a
pipe. Mimencode implements the encodings which were defined
for MIME as uuencode replacements, and should be
considerably more robust for e-mail use. Written by Nathaniel
S. Borenstein of Bell Communications Research,
Inc. (Bellcore) in 1991.
