I'm not sure, but since it is sample code included with the Perl
distribution, (location is: /usr/share/doc/perl/examples/uudecode), I
would assume that the code is to be viewed as _documentation_, and
that you are allowed to _read_ the code for to learn how to
uuen/decode in perl.

In any case, the magic part is _probably_ (I haven't looked at the
code either) perl's built-in pack and unpack commands with "u"
(uuencode) option.  Check the perlfunc man-page for details.
