       make_unicodemap - construct a unicode map file for Samba

       make_unicodemap codepage inputfile outputfile

       This tool is part of the Samba suite.

       make_unicodemap compiles text unicode map files into binary unicode map files for use with
       the internationalization features of Samba 2.2.

	      This is the codepage or UNIX character set we are processing (a number, e.g. 850).

	      This is the input file to process. This is a text unicode map file such as the ones
	      found in the Samba source/codepages directory.

	      This is the binary output file to produce.

       A text Samba unicode map file is a description that tells Samba how to map characters from
       a specified DOS code page or UNIX character set to 16 bit unicode.

       A binary Samba unicode map file is  a  binary  representation  of  the  same  information,
       including a value that specifies what codepage or UNIX character set this file is describ-


       These are the input (text) unicode map files provided in the Samba source/codepages direc-

       A text unicode map file consists of multiple lines containing two fields. These fields are

       o character - which is the (hex) character mapped on this line.

       o unicode - which is the (hex) 16 bit unicode character that the character will map to.

       unicode_map.<codepage> - These are the output (binary)  unicode	map  files  produced  and
       placed in the Samba destination lib/codepage directory.

       The  location of the server and its support files is a matter for individual system admin-
       istrators. The following are thus suggestions only.

       It is recommended that the make_unicodemap program be installed	under  the  $prefix/samba
       hierarchy,  in  a  directory  readable  by all, writeable only by root. The program itself
       should be executable by all. The program should NOT be setuid or setgid!

       This man page is correct for version 2.2 of the Samba suite.

       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew  Tridgell.  Samba
       is  now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux
       kernel is developed.

       The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer.	The man page  sources  were  con-
       verted  to  YODL  format  (another  excellent  piece of Open Source software, available at
       ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/ <URL:ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/>) and updated for the
       Samba  2.0  release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by
       Gerald Carter
