I don't think anyone's mentioned 'uudeview' yet, it automatically
detects and decodes XX, UU, Base64 and BinHex. 
For a newsgroup it's perfect to dump all interesting articles into a
single file and let uudecode loose on it (uudeview -i <file>)
(doesn't handle interleaved parts from different multipart files though)

'uuenview' can code to XX, UU and base64 (don't know about BinHex).
