-- you must give a "connect" command, default host is
-- gatekeeper.dec.com, default user is anonymous, default
-- password is your mail address.
--
-- binary files will not be compressed unless 'compress'
-- or 'compact'
-- command is given; use this if at all possible, it
-- helps a lot.
--
-- binary files will always be formatted into printable
-- ASCII with "btoa" or "uuencode" (default is "btoa").
--
-- all retrieved files will be split into 60KB chunks and
-- mailed.
--
-- VMS/DOS/Mac versions of uudecode, atob, compress and
-- compact are available, ask your LOCAL wizard about
-- them if you can't locate them (but try
-- gatekeeper.dec.com in /archive/pub/VMS if you're
-- still trapped on a VMS system.)
--
-- several mail unsplitters are hiding on
-- gatekeeper.dec.com in /pub/mail/ua/misc/unsplit.
-- includes one in c, one in perl, and one in VMS DCL.
