GNU sharutils consists of two pairs of utilities: shar and unshar, and
uuencode and uudecode.  "shar" makes so-called shell archives out of
many files, preparing them for transmission by electronic mail
services (converting binary data to ascii representations, breaking
the text into multiple shar scripts, etc.).  "unshar" is the safe way
to extract and reassemble the original files.  It will automatically
strip off the mail headers and other introductory text.

"uuencode" and "uudecode" are programs that convert binary files into
ascii text so that the original data can pass through the email system
without having intermediate hosts "fixing" the files en route.

This is a bug fix release for version 4.13 of sharutils
