Folks,

Sorry to show my ignorance (but not sorry enough to avoid doing so).

What's a 'uuencoded tar file' ?

Thanks,

Jim

to uuencpode something is to take it from binary and convert it to text.
tar is a grouping of files made by the (un*x/Linux) tar.

UUEncode is a way to convert binary data to a format where only readable
chars are used.  That means only ASCII chars (char-codes 32 to 126), and
not even all of them.  This way the (binary) file can be send over
ASCII-only lines (like some, now older, "internets") without being crippled
..

a TAR-file is something that comes outof the UNIX world.  It's short for
TApe aRchive. It's supposed to be a backup of disk-data to magnetic tape.
Sort of equivalent of ARJ.
