;;; Commentary:

;; An implementation of "uuencode" in Lisp.  Uses the function
;; base64-encode-region which is built-in to modern Emacsen.

;;; Code:

(defvar tramp-uu-b64-alphabet
  "Mapping from base64-encoded character to the byte it represents.")

(defvar tramp-uu-b64-char-to-byte
  (let ((i 0))
    (mapcar (lambda (c)
		  (cons c i)
		(setq i (1+ i))))
  "Alist of mapping from base64 character to its byte.")

(defun tramp-uu-byte-to-uu-char (byte)
  "Return the character encoding BYTE."
  (if (zerop byte) ?` (+ byte 32)))

(defun tramp-uu-b64-char-to-byte (char)
  "Return the byte that is encoded as CHAR."
  (cdr (assq char tramp-uu-b64-char-to-byte)))

(defun tramp-uuencode-region (beg end)
  "UU-encode the region between BEG and END."
  ;; First we base64 encode the region, then we transmogrify that into
  ;; uu encoding.
  (let ((len (base64-encode-region beg end t))
	(padding 0)
	i c)
      (goto-char beg)
      (setq i 0)
      (while (< i len)
	(setq c (char-after (point)))
	(delete-char 1)
	(if (equal c ?=)
	    ;; "=" means padding.  Insert "`" instead.  Not counted for length.
	    (progn (insert "`") (setq len (1- len)))
	  (insert (tramp-uu-byte-to-uu-char (tramp-uu-b64-char-to-byte c)))
	  (setq i (1+ i)))
	;; Every 60 characters, add "M" at beginning of line (as
	;; length byte) and insert a newline.
	(when (zerop (% i 60))
	    (insert (char-to-string (+ 32 (/ (* 3 60) 4)))))
	  (insert "\n")))
      ;; If there is something leftover, we compute the length byte
      ;; for that stuff and insert it and a trailing newline.
      (unless (zerop (% i 60))
	  (insert (char-to-string (+ 32 (% (- end beg) 45)))))
	(insert "\n"))
      ;; Why is there always a "`" line at the end?
      (insert "`\nend\n")
      (goto-char beg)
      (insert "begin 600 xxx\n"))))
