   Hello, everyone.
   Just have a question about Publisher 97 and samba version 2.0.5a.

   our office people can share some important files.  In this directory,

What really sucks about publisher is that it is a big jumble of both win16 and
win32 code. When you do not have name-mangling setup you can get all sorts of

 default case = lower
 mangle case = no
 mangled names = yes
 preserve case = yes
 short preserve case = no
