    Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.


    Backup Applications occasionally have problems with Extended ASCII characters in file names. This script will create the character as individual file names, so that a backup can be performed and it can be determined if the backups were successful with all extended ASCII characters.


    From the Linux console prompt just type the name of the utility.
    This will create a directory called OddFileNames and files in that directory with ASCII and exteded ASCII file names.
