yEnc TZ is a simple freeware program that decodes yEnc encoded files. I wrote it because I couldn't find an existing standalone yEnc decoder for Mac, and I wasn't about to pay $15 for a piece of shareware just so I could look at yEnc encoded binary files. MT-Newswatcher 3.2 for Mac OS X advertises that it can handle yEnc encoded binary files, but it wants to hand them off to another program to do the decoding. You can tell Newswatcher to use "yEnc TZ" to decode yEnc files.Older newsreaders don't know about the yEnc format. With older newsreaders you must save the articles and then, in the Finder, hand the saved articles to yEnc TZ.
Version 1.11 adds the following:
- Improved decoding of UUEncoded files: ignores embedded header lines.
- Mac OS 9 or later
