NAME


loadkeys, dumpkeys - load and dump keyboard translation tables

SYNOPSIS


loadkeys [filename]


dumpkeys


DESCRIPTION


loadkeys reads the file specified by filename, and modifies the keyboard
streams module's translation tables. If no file is specified, loadkeys
loads the file: /usr/share/lib/keytables/type_tt/layout_dd, where tt is
the value returned by the KIOCTYPE ioctl, and dd is the value returned by
the KIOCLAYOUT ioctl (see kb(4M)). These keytable files specify only
the entries that change between the specified layout and the default
layout for the particular keyboard type. On self-identifying keyboards,
the value returned by the KIOCLAYOUT ioctl is set from the DIP switches.


dumpkeys writes the current contents of the keyboard streams module's
translation tables, in the format specified by keytables(5), to the
standard output.
