I remember using uuencode and shar to send files through e-mail many 
years ago when BITNET was the "thing" at school.  This looks somewhat 
similar, but I can't figure out how to put the parts together again.

Partial solutions or guesses will be greatfully accepted at this point, 
they may provide the nudge to get me moving forward on this again.
