UUPC/extended is a PC based clone of UNIX-to-UNIX copy, providing batched mail, news and file transfer over serial connections or (except for DOS) TCP/IP links. For additional information on the nature of UUPC/extended, see the documentation archives, below.

Note: Only download one file at a time. If you violate this policy, you will be banned from downloading files.

Once you have the documents, get the executable archives for your environment. Most environments have three archives:
