DESCRIPTION
         UUxT is the ultimate uuencode/decode utility for the Amiga.
         Uuencoding is the process of converting a binary file into ASCII,
         so that it may be transmitted over a text, or "mail only" network
         such as the Usenet.  Many files are posted to the Usenet daily,
         but the must be uudecoded before you can use them.  UUxT
         makes the task of uuencoding and decoding simple, with its
         amiga style command interface.  UUxT now has an Intuition front
         end (UUxT-GUI) making all UU tasks simpler for beginers.
         You can even LhA and uuencode multiple files in a single step.
         (And vice-versa)  (LhA is a popular compression program/format
         that allows you to compress and archive multiple files)  Also, UUxT
         will decode uuencoded files with multiple mail headers and other
         garbage in them.  So you can download multiple part
         archives off the Usenet, and decode them without
         editing out all the headers.  UUxT also allows you to decode
         multi-part archives without joining all the parts together
         first.

NEW FEATURES

         - Added UUxT-GUI, a point and click workbench front end for

         - Added Wildcard support.

         - Only known enforcer hit removed.
