yEnc TZ

Home Page Release Notes License:

Current Version: 1.13 (April 10, 2004)

yEnc TZ is a a simple, freeware program that decodes yEnc encoded files, and (for some interesting trivia) it's one of the very few pieces of software that I can think of that is available natively for all Macs, from 680x0-based machines to the lastest Mac OS X boxes. Version 1.13 adds/changes the following:

  • CWPro5 doesn't allow // comments when ANSI Strict is set.
  • Only quit after timeout if there were no errors.
  • Better structure for event loop prevents odd behavior.
  • File open write vs. append mode mapping fixed.
  • Doesn't overwrite existing files. Uses new name.
  • BASE64 and UU handle multipart messages.
  • UU doesn't skip last line 2/3 of the time.
  • All errors show a message. May still sometimes fail to write all remaining parts?
  • yEnc now accepts an escaped SPACE.
  • Only removes input file if all parts decoded correctly.

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
