NAME
       loadkeys, dumpkeys - load and dump keyboard translation tables

SYNOPSIS
       loadkeys	[filename]

       dumpkeys

DESCRIPTION
       loadkeys	 reads	the  file specified by filename, and modifies the key-
       board streams module's translation tables. If  no  file	is  specified,
       loadkeys	 loads	the  file: /usr/share/lib/keytables/type_tt/layout_dd,
       where tt	is the value returned by the KIOCTYPE ioctl,  and  dd  is  the
       value  returned by the KIOCLAYOUT ioctl (see  kb(7M)).	These keytable
       files specify only the entries that change between the specified	layout
       and  the	default	layout for the particular keyboard type. On self-iden-
       tifying keyboards, the value returned by	the  KIOCLAYOUT	ioctl  is  set
       from the	DIP switches.

       dumpkeys	 writes	 the current contents of the keyboard streams module's
       translation tables, in the format specified  by	keytables(4),  to  the
       standard	output.

FILES
       /usr/share/lib/keytables/layout_dd
	     default keytable files
