Sending mail with some attached files using "mail" command?


Usually when I want to send a mail with a file attached to it, I do it with pine, but sometimes it would be a lot easier if I could do it directly with mail, from the console. Does anyone know how to do this?
Btw, I read the mail man page but didn't find anything. Thank you.

You can use:
Quote:
uuencode filename filename | mailx -s "Subject" name@host.com

How do I install uuencode?

Fedora 5 doesn't seem to have uuencode installed by default, I have mailx. So I tried to install uuencode with yum, it failed. I googled for a rpm and installed this:
Code:
[root@blue ~]# rpm -Uvh sharutils-4.6.1-1.2.src.rpm
   1:sharutils              warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root
warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root
########################################### [100%]
warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root
warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root
[root@blue ~]# updatedb
[root@blue ~]# locate uuencode
/usr/bin/gmime-uuencode
/usr/share/man/man1p/uuencode.1p.gz
/var/www/icons/uuencoded.gif
/var/www/icons/uuencoded.png
but still I don't have it installed. Do you have any ideas?

Thanks for this hint, I read uuencode's documentation and this is what I need

I've got it to work, but meanwhile found this aricle where you can find better alternatives to uuencode, just in case someone is interested. Thanks for the hint.
