I remember using uuencode and shar to send files through e-mail many years ago when BITNET was the "thing" at school. This looks somewhat similar, but I can't figure out how to put the parts together again.

Partial solutions or guesses will be greatfully accepted at this point, they may provide the nudge to get me moving forward on this again.

I'm preparing to take a computer on the road with me where I won't have direct access to the internet, but will be able to receive e-mail on a different computer through a webmail interface. I intend to keep up to date using CTM, and have looked through the handbook but there seems to be an important part missing.

I have downloaded the baseline and a few updates through FTP and when I have the files (cvs-cur.13214.gz for example) the updating works fine.

I'm trying to figure out how to use updates received in the mail. The updates are split into multiple parts and CTM doesn't seem to process them directly. I can't figure out how to reconstruct the original cvs-cur.*.gz file from the parts.

Could someone point me in the right direction? The handbook mentions the ctm-users list, but I've looked through the posts since 2003 and there's been very little in the last few years except spam.
