XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases(3)        XKB FUNCTIONS       XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases(3)



NAME
       XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases - Allocate geometry key aliases

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases ( geom, num_needed )
             XkbGeometryPtr geom;
             int num_needed;

ARGUMENTS
       - geom geometry for which key aliases should be allocated

       - num_needed
              number of new key aliases required

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb  provides  a number of functions to allocate and free subcomponents
       of a keyboard geometry. Use these functions to create  or  modify  key-
       board  geometries.  Note that these functions merely allocate space for
       the new element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the  values  explic-
       itly  in  your code. These allocation functions increase sz_* but never
       touch num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case  they
       reset  both  sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return Success if
       they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or  Bad-
       Value if a parameter is not as expected.

       XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases  allocates  space for num_needed key aliases and
       adds them to the specified geometry geom.  A key alias  is  a  pair  of
       strings  that associates an alternate name for a key with the real name
       for that key.

       To free geometry key aliases, use XkbFreeGeomKeyAliases.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc       Unable to allocate storage

       BadValue       An argument is out of range
