HOWTO: uudeview
Description: A decoder for binary files
Click here for ChangeLog
NOTE: I use GNU tar >= 1.13.25 so it's -j for .tar.bz2 files,
it's safe to assume that make, gcc, binutils, fileutils/coreutils, gawk, sed, and grep are prerequisites for almost everything

# uudeview 0.5pl20
# ================
# Prerequisites:
# sendmail (optional; for 'uuenview -m')
# inews (optional; for 'uuenview -p')
# tcl/tk (optional; for the xdeview frontend)

test -f installed/uudeview-0.5.20.tar.gz &&
 mv installed/uudeview-0.5.20.tar.gz .
test ! -f uudeview-0.5.20.tar.gz &&
mkdir -p -m 0700 src
cd src
find -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "uudeview-*" -exec rm -r {} \;

rm -f installed/uudeview-*.tar.*
mv uudeview-0.5.20.tar.gz installed/

# If you ever need to uninstall uudeview, run:
( cd /usr/local/bin ; rm -f uudeview uuenview )
( cd /usr/local/man/man1 ; rm -f uudeview.1 uuenview.1 )
