=head1 NAME

 puuencode - perl replacement for uuencode

=head1 SYNOPSIS

 puuencode inputfile as_outputfile

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Puuencode reads the inputfile and writes a printable version of it to
STDOUT in uuencoded style. Nothing fancy, just a simple uuencode
replacement.

=head1 BUGS

This implementation is much slower than most uuencode programs written
in C. Its primary intention is to allow quick testing of the
underlying Convert::UU module.
