XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		 XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)

NAME
       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias - Add	one key	alias to an existing keyboard geometry
       description

SYNOPSIS
       XkbKeyAliasPtr XkbAddGeomKeyAlias (XkbGeometryPtr  geom,	 char  *alias,
	      char *real);

ARGUMENTS
       - geom geometry to be updated

       - alias
	      alias to be added

       - real real name	to be bound to the new alias

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb  provides  functions	 to  add a single new element to the top-level
       keyboard	geometry. In each case the num_	* fields of the	 corresponding
       structure  is  incremented by 1.	These functions	do not change sz_* un-
       less there is no	more room in the array.	Some of	these  functions  fill
       in  the values of the element's structure from the arguments. For other
       functions, you must explicitly write code to fill the structure's  ele-
       ments.

       The  top-level geometry description includes a list of geometry proper-
       ties.  A	geometry property  associates  an  arbitrary  string  with  an
       equally	arbitrary  name. Programs that display images of keyboards can
       use geometry properties as hints, but they are not interpreted by  Xkb.
       No other	geometry structures refer to geometry properties.

       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias adds one key alias with the value alias to the geom-
       etry geom, and associates it with the key whose real name is real.  Xk-
       bAddGeomKeyAlias	 returns  NULL if any of the parameters	is empty or if
       it was not able to allocate space for the alias.	To allocate space  for
       an  arbitrary  number  of aliases, use the XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases func-
       tion.

STRUCTURES
	   typedef struct {
	       char	       real[XkbKeyNameLength];	 /* this key name must be in the keys array */
	       char	       alias[XkbKeyNameLength];	 /* symbolic key name as alias for the key */
	   } XkbKeyAliasRec,*XkbKeyAliasPtr;
