KEYCAP(3)              FreeBSD Library Functions Manual              KEYCAP(3)

NAME
     kgetent, kgetnum, kgetflag, kgetstr -- routines for accessing the keycap
     database

SYNOPSIS
     int
     kgetent(char *bp, char *name);

     int
     kgetnum(char *id);

     int
     kgetflag(char *id);

     char *
     kgetstr(char *id, char **area);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions extract and use capabilities from a keyboard capability
     data base, usually /usr/share/misc/keycap.pcvt, the format of which is
     described in keycap(5).

     The kgetent() function extracts the entry for keyboard mapping name into
     the buffer at bp.  The bp argument should be a character buffer of size
     1024 and must be retained through all subsequent calls to kgetnum(),
     kgetflag(), and kgetstr().  The kgetent() function returns -1 if none of
     the keycap data base files could be opened, 0 if the map name given does
     not have an entry, and 1 if all goes well.

     The kgetnum() function gets the numeric value of capability id, returning
     -1 if is not given for the map.

     The kgetflag() function returns 1 if the specified capability is present
     in the map's entry, 0 if it is not.

     The kgetstr() function returns the string value of the capability id,
     places it in the buffer at area, and advances the area pointer.  The
     kgetstr() function returns NULL if the capability was not found.

FILES
     /usr/share/misc/keycap.pcvt  Keyboard capabilities database (if nothing
                                  else chosen during installation).
