Filenames Encoding Conversion Under Linux

If you need to mass-convert filenames from one encoding to another, say you are migrating from one distro to another and need to move the legacy data, you can do that with the convmv util.

# apt-get install convmv
# convmv -f cp1251 -t utf8 -r --notest /dir/name
