Convert::UUlib is a versatile and powerful decoder/encoder library
for a variety of encodings used in Usenet and Mail (uuencode,
xxencode, b64, binhex...).
The library contains a variety of heuristics to reliably decode
any files found in the input files, whether part of a single
mail folder or spread over hundreds of files. Its two-pass
architecture makes it possible to decode hundreds of megabytes in
one sweep, without using much virtual memory.
