This program is part of the internationalization features of Samba
2.2 and is obsolete in Samba 3.0, which supports Unicode automatically. The make_smbcodepage program compiles a binary codepage file from a text-format codepage definition. It can also perform the reverse operation, decompiling a binary codepage file into a text version. Examples of text-format codepage files can be found in the Samba distribution in the source/codepages directory.
After Samba has been installed, examples of binary codepages can be found in the directory /usr/local/samba/lib/codepages.
For the first argument, use c to compile a codepage and d to decompile a codepage file. The codepage_number argument is the number of the codepage being processed (e.g., 850). The input_ file and output_file are the text- and binary-format codepages, with the types dependent on the operation (compiling or decompiling) that is being performed.
When we wrote the first version of this book, Rails was just starting
to ramp up as a framework. Now, the exploding web development platform is
working its way into the mainstream. Companies like Twitter have bet on
Rails and won big, and others have tried Rails and crashed hard. You should
be comfortable that youre entering this ecosystem not as a pioneer, but as
part of a much greater wave thats sweeping through the whole computing
profession. If you read the first edition, youll notice that were not
selling the framework quite so hard. In all honesty, we dont have to. Lets
lay the basic foundation so we can get to work.
Rails is a framework for building database-backed web
applications. Based on the Ruby programming language, Rails is best for
applications that need to be developed quickly without sacrificing a clean
structure that can also be well-maintained. Ruby is interpreted, but its
fast enough to attack websites with all but the most demanding performance
characteristics. And its tremendously popular. That popularity means you
can find what you need to build projects in Rails.
Live View is the name given to a camera’s ability to let you see, in real-time on the large, sharp LCD Monitor, just what the lens is passing to the image sensor. Normally, the reflex mirror that redirects the image from the lens up through the pentaprism to the viewfinder screen interrupts that image. For general photography, the conventional approach of composing a photograph and determining depth of field using the viewfinder works quite well. But when sharp focus is required, depth of field in a macro shot is critical, or you want to be able to control the camera from a connected computer, Live View is the way to go.

In Live View, the mirror is raised, which takes an element of protection away from the shutter. Do not point the camera at the sun while in Live View, as the highly focused sunlight can easily warp the curtains in the shutter, blinding it or worse.
