KBDMAP(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		     KBDMAP(1)

NAME
     kbdmap, vidfont --	front end for syscons

SYNOPSIS
     kbdmap [-K] [-V] [-d | -default] [-h | -help] [-l | -lang language]
	    [-p	| -print] [-r |	-restore] [-s |	-show] [-v | -verbose]

DESCRIPTION
     Kbdmap allows easy	setting	of available keymaps.  The vidfont command al-
     lows the setting of fonts.	 Both examine a	database for the keymaps and
     fonts.  Descriptions are in English by default, but may also be in	other
     languages.	 These programs	are interactive	and expect to run in a termi-
     nal to get	required input (e.g., a	keymap selection) from the user.

     It	is strongly recommended	to not choose MSDOS codepage keymaps or	fonts.
     Use the ISO standard version if available!	 X11 does not support MSDOS
     codepage.

     The following options are available:

     -K	     Run as command kbdmap.

     -V	     Run as command vidfont.

     -d, -default
	     Use default language.  Ignore LANG	environment variable.

     -h, -help
	     Print options and exit.

     -l, -lang language
	     Use language for description and menu

     -p, -print
	     Print description	of available keymaps or	fonts to stdout	and
	     exit.

     -r, -restore
	     Load default font from /etc/rc.conf.

     -s, -show
	     Show currently supported languages	and exit.

     -v, -verbose
	     More warnings.
