Pronounced "[you-you-decode]."
   1. To convert a text file created by the Unix uuencode utility back into its original binary form. Graphical images and other binary files are often sent to Usenet newsgroups in this form, because the newsgroups can only handle text and don't know how to manage binary files.
   2. The name of the utility program that performs a text-to-binary file conversion. Originally a Unix utility, uudecode is now available for most operating systems.
   See also uucp; uuencode.
