    Command:

    kbd_mode

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           kbd_mode [ -a | -u | -k | -s ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Without argument, kbd_mode prints the current keyboard mode (RAW, MEDI-
           UMRAW or XLATE).  With argument, it sets the  keyboard  mode  as  indi-
           cated:
    
           -s: scancode mode (RAW),
    
           -k: keycode mode (MEDIUMRAW),
    
           -a: ASCII mode (XLATE),
    
           -u: UTF-8 mode (UNICODE).
    
           Of  course  the  "-a" is only traditional, and the code used can be any
           8-bit character set.  With "-u" a 16-bit character set is expected, and
           these  chars are transmitted to the kernel as 1, 2, or 3 bytes (follow-
           ing the UTF-8 coding).  In these  latter  two  modes  the  key  mapping
           defined by loadkeys(1) is used.
    
           Warning:  changing the keyboard mode, other than between ASCII and Uni-
           code, will probably make your keyboard unusable.  This command is  only
           meant  for  use (say via remote login) when some program left your key-
           board in the wrong state.  Note that in some obsolete versions of  this
           program the "-u" option was a synonym for "-s".
