finaming - File naming status and control
finaming [ -ls ]
Use finaming without arguments to report the operating system’s current naming convention: AppleTalk Filing Protocol or standard ProDOS. AFP naming is desirable over ProDOS’s rigid syntax checking in order work with files on AppleTalk devices.
Using -l (long names) turns on AppleTalk Filing Protocol naming, while -s (short names) turns on standard ProDOS naming.
This command is useful from within the system’s $/etc/rc2 script to enable AFP Long Name convention, assuming AppleTalk services are present.
