vfs_cap man page

vfs_cap — CAP encode filenames

Synopsis

vfs objects = cap

Description

This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.

CAP (Columbia Appletalk Protocol) encoding is a technique for representing non-ASCII filenames in ASCII. The vfs_cap VFS module translates filenames to and from CAP format, allowing users to name files in their native encoding.

CAP encoding is most commonly used in Japanese language environments.

This module is stackable.

Examples

On a system using GNU libiconv, use CAP encoding to support users in the Shift_JIS locale:

       [global]
dos charset = CP932
dos charset = CP932
vfs objects = cap

Version

This man page is correct for version 3.0.25 of the Samba suite.
