XkbAllocKeyboard(3)              XKB FUNCTIONS             XkbAllocKeyboard(3)



NAME
       XkbAllocKeyboard -  Creates a keyboard description from scratch

SYNOPSIS
       XkbDescRec XkbAllocKeyboard ( void )

DESCRIPTION
       Applications  seldom  need to directly allocate a keyboard description;
       calling XkbGetKeyboard usually suffices. In the event you need to  cre-
       ate  a keyboard description from scratch, however, use XkbAllocKeyboard
       rather than directly calling malloc.

       If XkbAllocKeyboard fails to  allocate  the  keyboard  description,  it
       returns  NULL.   Otherwise,  it  returns a pointer to an empty keyboard
       description structure. The device_spec field will have been initialized
       to  XkbUseCoreKbd. You may then either fill in the structure components
       or use Xkb functions to obtain values for the structure components from
       a keyboard device.
