NAME
     keyboard-daemon --	read from a keyboard device node and execute commands

SYNOPSIS
     keyboard-daemon [-Vdv] [-f	config_file] <device_node>

DESCRIPTION
     The keyboard-daemon utility attaches to a given <device_node> and reads
     keypresses	from it.

     The options are as	follows:

     -V	     Return the	version	of keyboard-daemon.

     -d	     Daemonize (run in background).

     -v	     Verbose mode (useful for finding scan codes).

     -f	config_file
	     Specify an	alternative configuration file.	 The default is	for
	     /usr/local/etc/keyboard-daemon.conf.

     -p	pidfile
	     Specify a pidfile.	 This only takes effect	if -d is specified.

FILES
     /usr/local/etc/keyboard-daemon.conf

EXAMPLES
     Before starting keyboard-daemon, the target <device_node> must be discon-
     nected from the kbdmux(4) using kdbcontrol(1), for	example	using FreeBSD:

	   # kbdcontrol	-A device_node < /dev/console

     This is performed automatically when using	the FreeBSD rc script.

DIAGNOSTICS
     The keyboard-daemon utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error	oc-
     curs.
