       This program can	be used	to set various options available  in  the  XKB
       extensions.   This  includes such things	as mousekeys where one can use
       the numeric pad keys to move the	mouse; stickykeys where	modifiers like
       control and shift will lock until the next key press (good for one fin-
       ger typing); slowkeys where the keys will  not  work  unless  they  are
       pressed	for a certain amount of	time; and bouncekeys in	which if a key
       is pressed more than once rapidly, only one key press  will  be	regis-

       b       The b option controls whether the bell is switched on or	off.

       h       The  h  option (or no options) will type	a rather helpful usage
	       message - definitely more informative than this unfinished  man

       perkeyrepeat hex-mask
	       With this option, hex-mask is a sequence	of 64 hex digits, rep-
	       resenting 32 bytes.  These bytes	represent which	keys will  au-
	       torepeat,  and  which will not.	The 8n+kth key will autorepeat
	       if the kth bit of the nth byte is set.  See also	the r  or  the
	       repeatkey option.

       repeatkeys|r [key-code |	rate delay [interval] ]
	       The  r  or repeatkey  option can	be used	to control the autore-
	       peat feature.  By itself, it can	switch the  autorepeat	on  or
	       off.  Followed by a single number, it can be used to switch au-
	       torepeat	on or off for that particular keycode  (see  also  the
	       perkeyrepeat  option).  Followed	by rate, it can	be used	to set
	       the time	in milliseconds	after the key is  pressed  before  au-
	       torepeat	 will  start,  and optionally the time in milliseconds
	       between the key repeats.

       In some earlier versions	of X, some of the features do not  work	 prop-
       erly.  For example, mousekeys acceleration.  Also, the perkeyrepeat op-
       tion (or	repeatkey followed by a	key code) did not work.	 These are due
       to  bugs	 in  the  XKB extensions.  These bugs are fixed	in more	recent
       versions	of X.

       Also the	man page is woefully incomplete.
