      itemap - load an ITE (Internal Terminal Emulator) keyboard mapping.

      itemap [options]

      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.

	   -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

			  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.

      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

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

      ps2(7), termio(7), keymap_ed(1X111).
