NAME
       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 part of version 4.9.3 of the Samba suite.
