     XKBCOMP(1)		X Version 11 (Release 6.4)	    XKBCOMP(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xkbcomp - compile XKB	keyboard description

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xkbcomp [option] source [ destination	]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The xkbcomp keymap compiler converts a description of	an XKB
	  keymap into one of several output formats.   The most	common
	  use for xkbcomp is to	create a compiled keymap file (.xkm
	  extension) which can be read directly	by XKB-capable X
	  servers or utilities.	  The keymap compiler can also produce
	  C header files or XKB	source files.  The C header files
	  produced by xkbcomp can be included by X servers or
	  utilities that need a	built-in default keymap.  The XKB
	  source files produced	by xkbcomp are fully resolved and can
	  be used to verify that the files which typically make	up an
	  XKB keymap are merged	correctly or to	create a single	file
	  which	contains a complete description	of the keymap.

	  The source may specify an X display, or an .xkb or depends
	  on the format	of the source.	 Compiling a .xkb (keymap
	  source) file generates a .xkm	(compiled keymap file) by
	  default.   If	the source is a	.xkm file or an	X display,
	  xkbcomp generates a keymap source file by default.

	  If the destination is	an X display, the keymap for the
	  display is updated with the compiled keymap.

	  The name of the destination is usually computed from the
	  name of the source, with the extension replaced as
	  appropriate.	When compiling a single	map from a file	which
	  contains several maps, xkbcom	constructs the destination
	  file name by appending an appropriate	extension to the name
	  of the map to	be used.

     OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  -a	  Show all keyboard information, reporting implicit or
		  dervied information as a comment.  Only affects .xkb
		  format output.

	  -C	  Produce a C header file as output (.h	extension).

	  -dflts  Compute defaults for any missing components, such as
		  key names.

	  -Idir	  Specifies top-level directories to be	searched for
		  files	included by the	keymap description.

	  -l	  List maps that specify the map pattern in any	files
		  listed on the	command	line (not implemented yet).

     XKBCOMP(1)		X Version 11 (Release 6.4)	    XKBCOMP(1)

	  -m name Specifies a map to be	compiled from an file with
		  multiple entries.

	  -merge  Merge	the compiled information with the map from the
		  server (not implemented yet).

	  -o name Specifies a name for the generated output file.  The
		  default is the name of the source file with an
		  appropriate extension	for the	output format.

	  -opt parts
		  Specifies a list of optional parts.  Compilation
		  errors in any	optional parts are not fatal.  Parts
		  may consist of any combination of the	letters	c,
		  g,k,s,t which	specify	the compatibility map,
		  geometry, keycodes, symbols and types, respectively.

	  -Rdir	  Specifies the	root directory for relative path

	  -synch  Force	synchonization for X requests.

	  -w lvl  Controls the reporting of warnings during
		  compilation.	A warning level	of 0 disables all
		  warnings; a warning level of 10 enables them all.

	  -xkb	  Generate a source description	of the keyboard	as
		  output (.xkb extension).

	  -xkm	  Generate a compiled keymap file as output (.xkm
