UUDecode Converter - Unix-to-Unix Decoding

If you receive files in UUencode format for transfer protection reasons, you can decode the file yourselt without using any Unix tools. This page allows you to learn and test the UUdecode process.

What is UUEncode?

UUEncode is Unix-to-Unix encoding used on Unix systems to convert any data, text or binary, into printable characters before transferring it to other machines. UUEncode encoding is mainly used to protect data be transferred safely. UUEncoded files are usually having to the following format with the first line being optional:

begin 644 filename.ext
M3VXM;&EN92!497-T:6YG(%!A9V5S(&)Y(&1E=BY&64EC96YT97(N8V
M96QC;VUE('1O(&1E=BY&64EC96YT97(N8V]M(&]N+6QI;F4@;&5A<F
M86YD('1E<W1I;F<@<&%G97,N#0I#;&EC:R!T:&4@4W1A<G0@8G5T=&
(:7%U97,N+BX`
`
end

How to perform UUEncode decoding?

UUEncode decoding algorithm is very simple, you can write a conversion program yourself. But you can also use built-in functions like base64_decode() in PHP:

  • base64_decode(string) - Returns the clear text of the specified UUencoded string.

To help you learn and test Base64 decoding, FYIcenter.com has designed this online testing page. All you need to do is to enter the testing string in the form below and click the Start button. The converted string will be presented in the result area.
