       xkbprint - print an XKB keyboard description

       xkbprint [options] source [ output_file ]

       The xkbprint comman 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
       specified, 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
       display (e.g.:0), xkbprint appends the appropriate prefix to the
       display specification, replacing the colon with a dash.  For a local
       display, xkprint uses server-n where n is the number of the display.
