Wincode is a Windows 3.1x program which converts 8-bit BINARY (EXE,
COM,GIF, etc) files to 7-bit ASCII (Text) files (and vice versa) through a
process known as bit-shifting. Wincode currently supports UU, XX, USR,
Base64 (MIME 1.0 conformant), BINHEX, BTOA and BOO encoding/decoding. This
BINARY/ASCII conversion allows you to send and receive binary files via
e-mail or any other ascii-based communications system.
