NAME
       vfs_dirsort - Sort directory contents

SYNOPSIS
       vfs objects = dirsort

DESCRIPTION

       The vfs_dirsort module sorts directory entries alphabetically before
       sending them to the client.

       implications for large directories.

EXAMPLES
       Sort directories for all shares:

                   [global]
                vfs objects = dirsort
