I’ll try to add some to the confusion 🙂
Isn’t the charset conversions handled by iconv in gnu c? Is there a platform agnostic command for charset conversion?
On my samba I have specified dos charset CP850 and unix charset iso-8859-1 So dos clients (don’t know if that goes for just dos or everything from windows) writes the filename as CP 850, Samba converts and stores it as iso-8859-1 on the server.
