ns_uuencode - Binary-to-text encoding using "htuu" encoding
This command performs a binary-to-text encoding on string. The encoded string will be approximately 33% longer than the original. NOTE: This stype of encodeing is sometimes called "htuu". This command converts the specified argument to RFC 1113 printable encoding format. This technique is similar to the familiar Unix uuencode format in that it maps 6 binary bits to one ASCII character (or more aptly, 3 binary bytes to 4 ASCII characters). However, RFC 1113 does not use the same mapping to printable characters as uuencode.
