XStringToKeysym(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		    XStringToKeysym(3)

       XStringToKeysym,	XKeysymToString, XKeycodeToKeysym, XKeysymToKeycode,
       XConvertCase - convert keysyms

       KeySym XStringToKeysym(char *string);

       char *XKeysymToString(KeySym keysym);

       KeySym XKeycodeToKeysym(Display *display, KeyCode keycode, int index);

       KeyCode XKeysymToKeycode(Display	*display, KeySym keysym);

       void XConvertCase(KeySym	keysym,	KeySym *lower_return, KeySym *up-

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       index	 Specifies the element of KeyCode vector.

       keycode	 Specifies the KeyCode.

       keysym	 Specifies the KeySym that is to be searched for or converted.

		 Returns the lowercase form of keysym, or keysym.

       string	 Specifies the name of the KeySym that is to be	converted.

		 Returns the uppercase form of keysym, or keysym.

       Standard	KeySym names are obtained from <X11/keysymdef.h> by removing
       the XK_ prefix from each	name.  KeySyms that are	not part of the	Xlib
       standard	also may be obtained with this function.  The set of KeySyms
       that are	available in this manner and the mechanisms by which Xlib ob-
       tains them is implementation-dependent.

       If the KeySym name is not in the	Host Portable Character	Encoding, the
       result is implementation-dependent.  If the specified string does not
       match a valid KeySym, XStringToKeysym returns NoSymbol.

       The returned string is in a static area and must	not be modified.  The
       returned	string is in the Host Portable Character Encoding.  If the
       specified KeySym	is not defined,	XKeysymToString	returns	a NULL.

       The XKeycodeToKeysym function uses internal Xlib	tables and returns the
       KeySym defined for the specified	KeyCode	and the	element	of the KeyCode
       vector.	If no symbol is	defined, XKeycodeToKeysym returns NoSymbol.
       XKeycodeToKeysym	predates the XKB extension. If you want	to lookup a
       KeySym while using XKB you have to use XkbKeycodeToKeysym.

       If the specified	KeySym is not defined for any KeyCode, XKeysymToKey-
       code returns zero.

       The XConvertCase	function returns the uppercase and lowercase forms of
       the specified Keysym, if	the KeySym is subject to case conversion; oth-
       erwise, the specified KeySym is returned	to both	lower_return and up-
       per_return.  Support for	conversion of other than Latin and Cyrillic
       KeySyms is implementation-dependent.
