Peter Muriana asked about the filename extensions .uaa, .uab, uac etc..
as pertaining to what dearchiving program is neede to unpack them.

I'll stick my neck out and respond that these are unpackable with
uudecode.  When files are large and they are resident on a site that
also functions as an e-mail server (like the archive at houston - kudos
to Dan) they are often broken up into smaller files which are e-mailable.
So if you see a series of files, say for example maligned.uaa, maligned.uab
maligned.uac ...  import them all (ie all files that start with maligned
via: mget maligned.*) and then unpack them with uudecode.  If you don't
have/know where to get uudecode - drop me a line and I'll tell you where
you can get it.

Hope this helps,

Dan Jacobson
