Revision history for Perl module Convert::UU.

0.30 Mar 10, 1999

Harald Joerg <$<gt> sent me a patch to add binmode to the filehandles that are used, so the whole thing works on Windows.

Modernized the Makefile.PL to use fixin() instead of writing the EXE_FILES "by hand".

0.20 Feb 7, 1997

Further investigation of the warning I "fixed" yesterday. Added tests for a trailing empty string in the last line of the uuencoded string and for a zero in the last line of the uudecoded string. Found the bug in the code that skipped lines starting with a "#". Allowing such lines fixed a long standing bug.

Thanks to Kurtis D. Rader <> who describes that a uuencoded chunk that consists of nothing but backtick triggers a "Use of uninitialized variable" warning. Although I'd like to see it as a bug in perl this version takes precautions to avoid the warning.

0.05 Nov 25, 1997

Updated to perl5.004 using m//gc instead of s///.

Using binmode() for filehandles to (hopefully) make it work on Non-UNIX systems (Thanks to Bill Baxter <> for the report)

0.04 Feb 10, 1997

Integrated a patch by that allows array references being passed to uudecode.
