    dumpkeys

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           dumpkeys  [  -hilfn -ccharset --help --short-info --long-info --numeric
           --full-table --funcs-only --keys-only --compose-only  --charset=charset
           ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           dumpkeys  writes,  to  the standard output, the current contents of the
           keyboard driver's  translation  tables,  in  the  format  specified  by
           keymaps(5).
    
           Using  the  various options, the format of the output can be controlled
           and also other information from the kernel and the programs dumpkeys(1)
           and loadkeys(1) can be obtained.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -h --help
                  Prints the program's version number and a short usage message to
                  the program's standard error output and exits.
    
           -i --short-info
                  Prints some characteristics of the kernel's keyboard driver. The
                  items shown are:
    
                  Keycode range supported by the kernel
    
                         This tells what values can be used after the keycode key-
                         word in keytable files. See keymaps(5) for more  informa-
                         tion and the syntax of these files.
    
                  Number of actions bindable to a key
    
                         This  tells  how  many different actions a single key can
                         output using various modifier keys. If the  value  is  16
                         for example, you can define up to 16 different actions to
                         a key combined with modifiers. When the value is 16,  the
                         kernel probably knows about four modifier keys, which you
                         can press in  different  combinations  with  the  key  to
                         access all the bound actions.
    
                  Ranges of action codes supported by the kernel
    
                         This  item  contains a list of action code ranges in hex-
                         adecimal notation.  These are the values that can be used
                         in  the right hand side of a key definition, ie. the vv's
                         in a line
    
                                 keycode xx = vv vv vv vv
    
                         (see keymaps(5) for more information about the format  of
                         key  definition lines).  dumpkeys(1) and loadkeys(1) sup-
                         port a symbolic notation,  which  is  preferable  to  the
                         numeric  one, as the action codes may vary from kernel to
                         of the keyboard and are defined to send  standard  escape
                         sequences. However, you can redefine these to send common
                         command lines, email  addresses  or  whatever  you  like.
                         Especially if the number of this item is greater than the
                         number of function and editing keys in your keyboard, you
                         may  have  some "spare" action codes that you can bind to
                         AltGr-letter combinations, for example, to send some use-
                         ful strings. See loadkeys(1) for more details.
    
                  Function strings
    
                         You can see you current function key definitions with the
                         command
    
                                 dumpkeys --funcs-only
    
           -l --long-info
                  This option instructs dumpkeys to print a long information list-
                  ing.  The  output  is the same as with the --short-info appended
                  with the list of action symbols  supported  by  loadkeys(1)  and
                  dumpkeys(1), along with the symbols' numeric values.
    
           -n --numeric
                  This  option causes dumpkeys to by-pass the conversion of action
                  code values to symbolic notation and to print the in hexadecimal
                  format instead.
    
           -f --full-table
                  This  makes  dumpkeys  skip  all  the short-hand heuristics (see
                  keymaps(5)) and output the key bindings in the  canonical  form.
                  First  a  keymaps line describing the currently defined modifier
                  combinations is printed. Then for each key a row with  a  column
                  for  each  modifier  combination is printed. For example, if the
                  current keymap in use uses seven modifiers, every row will  have
                  seven action code columns. This format can be useful for example
                  to programs that post-process the output of dumpkeys.
    
           --funcs-only
                  When this option is given, dumpkeys prints only the function key
                  string  definitions. Normally dumpkeys prints both the key bind-
                  ings and the string definitions.
    
           --keys-only
                  When this option is given, dumpkeys prints only  the  key  bind-
                  ings.  Normally  dumpkeys  prints  both the key bindings and the
                  string definitions.
                  default.    This   option   produces  an  output  line  'charset
                  "iso-8859-X"', telling loadkeys how  to  interpret  the  keymap.
                  (For  example,  "division"  is  0xf7  in  iso-8859-1 but 0xba in
                  iso-8859-8.)
