keyboard_init(3)	      Svgalib User Manual	      keyboard_init(3)

NAME
       keyboard_init, keyboard_init_return_fd -	initialize the keyboard	to raw
       mode

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<vgakeyboard.h>

       int keyboard_init(void);
       int keyboard_init_return_fd(void);

DESCRIPTION
       These routines initialize the keyboard to raw mode. No ASCII codes  are
       produced,  instead  svgalib  keeps track	of each	single keypress	or de-
       press.  The return_fd version returns the file descriptor of  the  con-
       sole device to allow you	to do further tricks with it (though it	is un-
       clear which).  The other	version	just returns 0	if  successful.	  Both
       return -1 on error.

       keyboard_close(3) returns to normal operation.

       When  in	 raw  keyboard	mode  you  can	no  longer use vga_getch(3) or
       vga_getkey(3) but you must use  keyboard_getstate(3)  or	 keyboard_key-
       pressed(3).

       Depending  on the setting of keyboard_translatekeys(3) even in raw mode
       a <Ctrl>-C will cause a SIGINT.	In any case  svgalib  will  check  for
       <Alt>-F1	- <Alt>-F10 and	perform	console	switches accordingly.
