KBD_MODE(1)							   KBD_MODE(1)

NAME
       kbd_mode	- recover the PC console keyboard

SYNOPSIS
       kbd_mode	[ -a -u	]

DESCRIPTION
       Kbd_mode	resets the PC console keyboard to a rational state.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -a      Set  the	 keyboard  so  that ASCII characters are read from the
	       console.

       -u      Set the keyboard	so that	undecoded  keyboard  values  are  read
	       from the	console.

EXAMPLES
       If  the	server	crashes	or otherwise fails to put the keyboard back in
       ascii mode when it exits, it can	leave your keyboard dead.  If you  are
       able to login remotely, you can reset it	typing:

	    kbd_mode -a

       Conversely,  changing  the  keyboard  to	ascii mode while the server is
       running will make the keyboard appear to	be dead	while  the  the	 mouse
       continues  to  work.  Again, if you are able to login remotely, you can
       reset it	typing:

	    kbd_mode -u
