xkbcomp - compile XKB keyboard description
xkbcomp [-option...] keymap-source
Produce a C header file as output (.h
Specifies top-level directories to be searched for files included
by the keymap description.
Specifies a map to be compiled from an XKB directory file
(not implemented yet).
Specifies a name for the generated output file. The default
is the name of the source file with an appropriate extension for the output
Controls the reporting of warnings during compilation. A
warning level of 0 disables all warnings; a warning level of 10 enables them
Generate a source description of the keyboard as output (.xkb
Generate a compiled keymap file as output (.xkm
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.
