Code sent from a Unix environment over email arrives in encoded
form.  As I understand it, data transformations are as follows:

Operation		Unix		Genera Equivalent

Source			text file	lisp file
Make Tar		tar		Write Tar File
Compress		compress	Compress File
Make ascii		uuencode	m-X Mail Eco does this
Now mail it
On reception:
Make into binary 	uudecode	m-X Decode Eco
Uncompress 		uncompress 	Uncompress File
Untar			tar -xvf	Read Tar File

Home and dry

For my incoming unix data, Genera now kindly offers Uncompress File
and Read Tar File.

Does anyone have a UUdecode facility?
