Rosetta is an application that can decode files that have been encoded using the most common encoding methods (BinHex, MacBinary, MIME Base64, uuencode, yEnc). Rosetta easily handles multiple attachments per post and posts that have erroneously been encoded multiple times. It recognizes and properly decodes unusual variations of many of the standard (uuencoded, Base64 and yEnc), and non-standard encoding formats found in usenet binary posts that other decoders fail to correctly and completely decode. It can also recombine binary files that have been split into multiple segments and permits the proper ordering of the individual segments in the final combination file.Rosetta also has the ability to resplit an MPEG file that has been created by improperly joining multiple smaller MPEG movies one after the other. QuickTime cannot play such movies properly, but they can be played once they've been re-split into the smaller individual constituent movies. It can also process CDXA (".dat") format movie files to remove the file header leaving behind the MPEG movie that QuickTime should be able to play. Rosetta can also paste together individual movie files back into one long, correctly formatted movie file.
