    8 # files, but the first character in most subsequent lines is 'h' instead of
    9 # 'M'.  (xxencoding uses lowercase letters in place of most of uuencode's
   10 # punctuation and survives BITNET gateways better.)  If regular expressions
   11 # were supported, this entry could possibly be split into two with
   12 # "begin\040\.\*\012M" or "begin\040\.\*\012h" (where \. and \* are REs).
