Generate a binary keyboard table from a textual keyboard definition
mkkbd [-f file] [-h dir] [-i dir] [-v[v]...] source_file
The mkkbd utility compiles a text file containing keyboard definitions and is capable of creating a binary keyboard table file from each definition file. The resulting binary file is used in devi-hid.
|You need to use mkkbd only if you create or modify a keyboard definition source file.|
The compiled output file is created in the current directory or according to the -f option. For a sample keyboard definition file, see /usr/photon/keyboard/sample.kdef.
