GEN_KEYMAP(1) General Commands Manual GEN_KEYMAP(1)


gen_keymapgenerate a keyboard map decision tree


gen_keymap list ...


gen_keymap generates a decision tree from a set of keyboard maps which can be used to help a user decide which keyboard map to use. The program using the decision tree typically asks the user to press some keys; at each step, it examines the returned keycode and uses it to prune the list of possible keyboard maps until there is only one left.


Show program's version number and exit.
-?, --help
Show help text.
, --verbose
Be more verbose.
Too-short keymaps are skipped (default: 30 entries).
, --graph
Generate a hopefully-nice-looking .dot file.
Print the to-be-processed keymaps
, --installer
Input files are in d-i map form.
DIRS, --inc=DIRS, --include=DIRS
Add a directory to the search path.
Set output file (default: stdout).
Include only the branches leading to these keymaps.
Start generating the tree based only on these keymaps. (The difference between --filter and --useonly is that the former generates the whole tree and then prunes it, while the latter only generates a reduced tree to begin with. This may have implications for performance on large trees.)
SKIP, --skip=SKIP
Keymaps to skip.
, --test
Test the generated maps.
Ask user to choose among indistinguishable keymaps.
