XkbAllocCompatMap(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		  XkbAllocCompatMap(3)

NAME
       XkbAllocCompatMap  - Allocate a new compatibility map if	you do not al-
       ready have one available

SYNOPSIS
       Status XkbAllocCompatMap	(XkbDescPtr xkb, unsigned int which,  unsigned
	      int num_si);

ARGUMENTS
       - xkb  keyboard description in which to allocate	compat map

       - which
	      mask of compatibility map	components to allocate

       - num_si
	      number of	symbol interpretations to allocate

DESCRIPTION
       xkb specifies the keyboard description for which	compatibility maps are
       to be allocated.	The compatibility map is  the  compat  field  in  this
       structure.

       which  specifies	 the compatibility map components to be	allocated (see
       XkbGetCompatMap).  which	is an inclusive	OR of the bits shown in	 Table
       1.

		 Table 1 Compatibility Map Component Masks
       ---------------------------------------------------------------
       Mask		    Value    Affecting
       ---------------------------------------------------------------
       XkbSymInterpMask	    (1<<0)   Symbol interpretations
       XkbGroupCompatMask   (1<<1)   Group maps
       XkbAllCompatMask	    (0x3)    All compatibility map components

       num_si  specifies the total number of entries to	allocate in the	symbol
       interpretation vector (xkb.compat.sym_interpret).

       XkbAllocCompatMap returns Success if successful,	 BadMatch  if  xkb  is
       NULL, or	BadAlloc if errors are encountered when	attempting to allocate
       storage.

STRUCTURES
	   typedef struct {
	       KeySym		 sym;	       /* keysym of interest or	NULL */
	       unsigned	char	 flags;	       /* XkbSI_AutoRepeat, XkbSI_LockingKey */
	       unsigned	char	 match;	       /* specifies how	mods is	interpreted */
	       unsigned	char	 mods;	       /* modifier bits, correspond to eight real modifiers */
	       unsigned	char	 virtual_mod;  /* 1 modifier to	add to key virtual mod map */
	       XkbAnyAction	 act;	       /* action to bind to symbol position on key */
	   } XkbSymInterpretRec,*XkbSymInterpretPtr;

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAlloc	      Unable to	allocate storage

       BadMatch	      A	compatible version of Xkb was  not  available  in  the
		      server or	an argument has	correct	type and range,	but is
		      otherwise	invalid

       XkbGetCompatMap(3)

NOTES
       Note that symbol	interpretations	in a compatibility map (the sym_inter-
       pret  vector of XkbSymInterpretRec structures) are also allocated using
       this same function. To ensure that there	is  sufficient	space  in  the
       symbol  interpretation vector for entries to be added, use XkbAllocCom-
       patMap specifying which as XkbSymInterpretMask and the number  of  free
       symbol interpretations needed in	num_si.
