Well a munged file is a munged file, and pretty useless. =)

I'm sure there is a uuencode/uudecode for dos/windows, somewhere, probably has one, if not there is enough source code, the
algorithm is very easy (and old).  Anyways, I would normally tar and gzip
or bzip2 the file and then uuencode it.  Note: certain mail gateways have a
maximum size in which they can send a message, normally it's safe to say 1
meg.  If eudora is chopping it up, you'll have to find a way to disable it,
I believe a lot of MIME capable mail readers auto-split messages of certain
sizes, I know Gnus does this.
