NAME
       xkbprint	- print	an XKB keyboard	description

SYNOPSIS
       xkbprint	[options] source [ output_file ]

DESCRIPTION
       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	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  de-
       pending	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,
       xkprint uses server-n where n is	the number of the display.
