Post Automated sending attachments through eamil

I am trying to move code from a Solaris platform to a Linux platform.

In solaris I can send and attachment through mailx using


mailx -s"Subject:" << EOF

Here is an attachment

`uuencode localfilename.txt remotefilename.txt`


The problem is first Linux does not use "mailx" and second is the Linux uuencoder does not use STDOUT to encode the file so nothing is attached to the email.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

There is a program called "mail-files", try that.
