Hi All,

As known, samba can mapping non-DOS names under UNIX to DOS-compatible names
by using some HASH/HASH2 algorithm. But is there any way we can define a
character mapping tables by self, not using HASH? such as: (just a sample)

character mapping table:
Unix        Windows
"     <------->    a
*     <------->    b
/     <------->    c
:     <------->    d
<    <------->    e
>    <------->    f
?    <------->    g
\    <-------->    h
|    <-------->    i

then a filename '***' on Unix will be mapped to 'bbb' on Windows... and so

Thanks a lot.
