NAME
       loadkeys, dumpkeys - load and dump keyboard translation tables

SYNOPSIS
       loadkeys [filename]

       dumpkeys

DESCRIPTION
       loadkeys  reads  the  file specified by filename, and modifies the key-
       board streams module's translation tables. If  no  file  is  specified,
       loadkeys  loads  the  file: /usr/share/lib/keytables/type_tt/layout_dd,
       where tt is the value returned by the KIOCTYPE ioctl,  and  dd  is  the
       value  returned by the KIOCLAYOUT ioctl (see  kb(7M)).   These keytable
       files specify only the entries that change between the specified layout
       and  the default layout for the particular keyboard type. On self-iden-
       tifying keyboards, the value returned by the  KIOCLAYOUT ioctl  is  set
       from the DIP switches.

       dumpkeys  writes  the current contents of the keyboard streams module's
       translation tables, in the format specified  by  keytables(4),  to  the
       standard output.
