Security considerations: Since the encoded file may be any supported HP3000 file type, including an executable file, appropriate caution should be excercised. Interoperability considerations: Since HP3000 files have specific attributes (separate from their contents) that must be preserved in transport, this encoding imbeds file attribute information at the beginning of the body part. Inclusion of these attributes makes the data essent- ially useless to other platforms, but is required in order to eventually reconstruct an identical file on a destination HP3000. This encoding should only be used for files which are intended to be transported only to another HP3000 system. Published specification: Not available.
