uudeview (version 0.5.20)

UUDeview is a smart decoder for attachments that you have received in encoded form via electronic mail or from the usenet. It is similar to the standard uudecode(1) command, yet with more comfort and flexibility. UUDeview supports the uuencoding, xxencoding, Base64 and BinHex encoding methods, and is able to handle split-files (which have been sent in multiple parts) as well as multiple files at once, thus greatly simplifying the decoding process. Usually, you will not have to manually edit files to prepare them for decoding.

After invoking uudeview, it will scan all given files for encoded data, sort them and their parts and then present you with the list of files that seem like they can be decoded properly. You can then pick files individually for decoding.
