The example should > probably be updated to have actual encrypted/encoded text. Do you know whether BASE64 was considered as encoding scheme and whether uuencode was preferred? BASE64 is well standardized and generally used in MIME email (http://www.mhonarc.org/~ehood/MIME/2045/rfc2045.html#6.8) to encode binary data. There are plenty of codecs floating around. I remember reading this in the mmencode(1) man-page: RATIONALE Mimencode is intended to be a replacement for uuencode for mail and news use. The reason is simple: uuencode doesn't work very well in a number of circumstances and ways. In particular, uuencode uses characters that don't translate well across all mail gateways (particularly ASCII <-> EBCDIC gateways). Also, uuencode is not standard -- there are several variants floating around, encoding and decoding things in different and incompatible ways, with no "standard" on which to base an implementation.
