I'm running redhat 9, and apparently uudecode isn't on there. I read the man page for uuencode, which apparently has uudecode as a sort of "option" for the uuencode command, like:

uuencode::uudecode <filename>

well that'd be great, but I don't seem to have uuencode either, or else it's not in my path. Anybody know where the herr it is if it's installed by default, and if not, where I can get it?
