 itemap(1M)                                                       itemap(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      itemap - load an ITE (Internal Terminal Emulator) keyboard mapping.

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      itemap [options]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The itemap command loads a keyboard mapping into the ITE (the graphics
      console driver), or displays ITE keyboard mappings.  itemap is run by
      /etc/bcheckrc automatically.  It is not usually explicitly invoked by
      the user.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
        -d name
        -d keyboard_ID Dump a keymap to standard output in hexadecimal

        -h             Load the specified keymap into the kernel mapping
                       table used for HP-HIL keyboards.

        -i             Interactively prompt for a PS2 DIN keyboard mapping.
                       itemap scans the keymap database file for all mapping
                       names beginning with a PS2_DIN prefix.  Each of these
                       names is displayed, and one must be selected.

        -k database_file_name
                       The name of the keymap database file to be used for
                       input.  The default is /etc/X11/XHPKeymaps.

        -L             Load the appropriate keymap.  itemap scans the
                       hardware for a keyboard, determines the language of
                       that keyboard, and loads the keymap corresponding to
                       that keyboard.

                       Because itemap cannot determine the language of PS2
                       DIN keyboards, use the -i option when using -L with
                       PS2 DIN keyboards.

        -l name
        -l keyboard_ID Load a specified keyboard map.  Once loaded, ITE uses
                       the specified mapping.

                       When loading a keyboard mapping with the -l option,
                       itemap matches the suffix of the name of the
                       specified keyboard mapping with those found in
                       /etc/X11/XHPKeymaps to determine the keyboard
                       language.  This information is used by the ITE to
                       perform ISO 7-to-8 bit conversion.  Keymap names
                       added by users, via

 itemap(1M)                                                       itemap(1M)


                       should use the same suffixes as those already used in
                       /etc/X11/XHPKeymaps.  For example, a French keyboard
                       mapping can be named New_French, for consistency with
                       existing ITF_French and PS2_French mappings.  A
                       mapping called New_Stuff would not match any suffix
                       patterns found by itemap, and would result in
                       incorrect ISO 7-to-8 bit conversion.

        -p             Load the specified keymap into the kernel mapping
                       table used for PS2 DIN keyboards.

        -v             Perform actions verbosely.

        -w file_name   If a keymap for a PS2 DIN keyboard is loaded, write
                       its name to file_name.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      To automatically install the correct mapping for an HP-HIL keyboard:

           itemap -L

      To explicitly load the ITF_French mapping for an HP-HIL keyboard:

           itemap -h -l ITF_French

      To explicitly load the PS2_DIN_French mapping for a PS2 DIN keyboard:

           itemap -p -l PS2_DIN_French

      To interactively choose a PS2 DIN keyboard mapping:

           itemap -Li

      To generate a list of the available keyboard mappings:

           /usr/contrib/bin/X11/keymap_ed -l

 FILES    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/contrib/bin/X11/keymap_ed          Keymap database editor
      /etc/X11/XHPKeymaps                     System keymap database
      /etc/kbdlang                            Contains mapping name
                                              configured for PS2 DIN
