Installation a tool on linux having tar.uue extension

I have to install one tool on linux platform which have tar.uue (genscanlinux.tar.uue) extension. I am unable to unzip it. Kindly tell me how can i unzip and install it?
Thanks in advance :)

Answer

To decode a file with .uue extension use the following command:

uudecode genscanlinux.tar.uue

after this you will get genscanlinux.tar. You can unzip it using this command:

tar -zxvf genscanlinux.tar

After this you will get extracted file in the current directory.
Hope this will help.
