Contents of the READ.ME file


=>> xxdecode.c
=>> xxencode.c

The source code for the XX scheme to code and decode binary files as
distributed and used on BITNET. When a binary file is encoded it is
rendered as a flat ASCII file for transmission over the network.
Decoding the file reverses the process (as one might expect).

Type xx??code for command line syntax

=>> xxdecode.exe
=>> xxencode.exe

Compiled under TC++ 2nd Edition. The only changes made to the original
source as received from BITNET was to add a return value of 0 (zero) to
main() and other functions which did not have a return value associated
with them.

These programs are *not* compatible with the Unix uu??code programs
although the overall functioning of the programs is very similiar.
