XtSetKeyTranslator(3)		 XT FUNCTIONS		 XtSetKeyTranslator(3)

NAME
       XtSetKeyTranslator, XtTranslateKeycode, XtRegisterCaseConverter,
       XtConvertCase - convert KeySym to KeyCodes

SYNTAX
       void XtSetKeyTranslator(Display *display, XtKeyProc proc);

       void XtTranslateKeycode(Display *display, KeyCode keycode, Modifiers
	      modifiers, Modifiers *modifiers_return, KeySym *keysym_return);

       void XtRegisterCaseConverter(Display *display, XtCaseProc proc, KeySym
	      start, KeySym stop);

       void XtConvertCase(Display *display, KeySym keysym, KeySym *lower_re-
	      turn, KeySym *upper_return);

ARGUMENTS
       display	 Specifies the display.

       keycode	 Specifies the KeyCode to translate.

       keysym	 Specifies the KeySym to convert.

       keysym_return
		 Returns the resulting KeySym.

       lower_return
		 Returns the lowercase equivalent of the KeySym.

       upper_return
		 Returns the uppercase equivalent of the KeySym.

       modifiers Specifies the modifiers to the	KeyCode.

       modifiers_return
		 Returns a mask	that indicates the modifiers actually used to
		 generate the KeySym.

       proc	 Specifies the procedure that is to perform key	translations
		 or conversions.

       start	 Specifies the first KeySym for	which this converter is	valid.

       stop	 Specifies the last KeySym for which this converter is valid.

DESCRIPTION
       The XtSetKeyTranslator function sets the	specified procedure as the
       current key translator.	The default translator is XtTranslateKey, an
       XtKeyProc that uses Shift and Lock modifiers with the interpretations
       defined by the core protocol.  It is provided so	that new translators
       can call	it to get default KeyCode-to-KeySym translations and so	that
       the default translator can be reinstalled.

       The XtTranslateKeycode function passes the specified arguments directly
       to the currently	registered KeyCode to KeySym translator.

       The XtRegisterCaseConverter registers the specified case	converter.
       The start and stop arguments provide the	inclusive range	of KeySyms for
       which this converter is to be called.  The new converter	overrides any
       previous	converters for KeySyms in that range.  No interface exists to
       remove converters; you need to register an identity converter.  When a
       new converter is	registered, the	Intrinsics  refreshes the keyboard
       state if	necessary.  The	default	converter understands case conversion
       for all KeySyms defined in the core protocol.

       The XtConvertCase function calls	the appropriate	converter and returns
       the results.  A user-supplied XtKeyProc may need	to use this function.
