The add-on prefix conversion instructs the server to insert one or more characters to a filename before it is transferred to the server or client. For example, a user requests the file procman.tar.gz. The server has a conversion rule to add a prefix of gnome to all .tar.gz files; thus the server would append this string to the file before sending it to the client. The user would receive a file called gnome_procman.tar.gz. Keywords such as uppercase and lowercase can be used in this function to change the case of the filename for those operating systems in which case makes a difference. Similar to the strip prefix conversion, this feature is not yet implemented in version 2.6.2.
