.TH UUFILTER 1x "21 October 1993"
.SH NAME
uufilter - decode uuencoded files to stdout
.SH SYNOPSIS
\fIuufilter\fR [\-f \fIoutfilename\fR] [\-l] [\-s] [\-v] [\fIinfilename\fR]
.SH DESCRIPTION
\fIUufilter\fR is a "smart" uuencoded file decoder that can optionally
dump the file to stdout.
.PP
If no filename is supplied, input is read from stdin.
.PP
\fIUufilter\fR automatically ignores lines that do not appear to be
part of the uuencoded file.  This is particularly useful in uudecoding
files that have been concatenated from several email or news postings
without stripping off the headers or otherwise editing extraneous
content.
.SH OPTIONS
.TP 8
\-f \fIfilename\fR
Dump output to \fIfilename\fR rather than the name specified in the
uuencoded file.
.TP
\-l
Lenient mode.  This is useful if passed through a mailer that adds
trailing spaces.
.TP
\-s
Dump output to stdout rather than to the filename indicated in the
uuencoded file.
.TP
\-v
Verbose mode; talks about what's going on.
