       xkbprint	- print	an XKB keyboard	description

       xkbprint	[options] source [ output_file ]

       The  xkbprint  command generates	a printable or encapsulated PostScript
       description of the XKB keyboard description specified by	 source.   The
       source  can be any compiled keymap (.xkm) file that includes a geometry
       description or an X display specification.  If an output_file is	speci-
       fied,  xkbprint writes to it.  If no output file	is specified, xkbprint
       creates replaces	the extension of the source  file  with	 .ps  or  .eps
       depending on the	requested format.  If the source is a non-local	X dis-
       play (e.g.:0), xkbprint appends the appropriate prefix to  the  display
       specification,  replacing  the colon with a dash.  For a	local display,
