File encoded with uuencode, a Unix program that converts binary files to a text format; stores the encoded textual representation of a binary file; commonly used for emailing documents so the file does not become corrupted; must first be decoded to open the original file.
"UUE" stands for "Unix to Unix Encoding." It is most often used to transfer files between Unix-based systems. UUE files can be decoded to the original binary file with uudecode, or another UUE decoding utility.
NOTE: UUE files can be decoded with a Web browser using the Web Utils Online UUEncoder UUDecoder Tool website.
