XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases(3)					   XKB FUNCTIONS					 XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases(3)

NAME
XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases - Allocate geometry key aliases SYNOPSIS
Status XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases (XkbGeometryPtr geom, int num_needed); ARGUMENTS
- geom geometry for which key aliases should be allocated - num_needed number of new key aliases required DESCRIPTION
Xkb provides a number of functions to allocate and free subcomponents of a keyboard geometry. Use these functions to create or modify key- board geometries. Note that these functions merely allocate space for the new element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the values explicitly in your code. These allocation functions increase sz_* but never touch num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case they reset both sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return Success if they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or BadValue if a parameter is not as expected. XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases allocates space for num_needed key aliases and adds them to the specified geometry geom. A key alias is a pair of strings that associates an alternate name for a key with the real name for that key. To free geometry key aliases, use XkbFreeGeomKeyAliases. DIAGNOSTICS
BadAlloc Unable to allocate storage BadValue An argument is out of range SEE ALSO

NAME
XkbFreeGeomKeyAliases - Free geometry key aliases SYNOPSIS
void XkbFreeGeomKeyAliases (XkbGeometryPtr geom, int first, int count, Bool free_all); ARGUMENTS
- geom geometry in which key aliases should be freed - first first key alias to be freed - count number of key aliases to be freed - free_all True => all key aliases are freed DESCRIPTION
Xkb provides a number of functions to allocate and free subcomponents of a keyboard geometry. Use these functions to create or modify key- board geometries. Note that these functions merely allocate space for the new element(s), and it is up to you to fill in the values explicitly in your code. These allocation functions increase sz_* but never touch num_* (unless there is an allocation failure, in which case they reset both sz_* and num_* to zero). These functions return Success if they succeed, BadAlloc if they are not able to allocate space, or BadValue if a parameter is not as expected. If free_all is True, all aliases in the top level of the specified geometry geom are freed regardless of the value of first or count. Oth- erwise, count aliases in geom are freed beginning with the one specified by first. RETURN VALUES
Success The XkbFreeGeomKeyAliases function returns Success if there are no allocation errors. DIAGNOSTICS
BadAlloc Unable to allocate storage BadValue An argument is out of range X Version 11 libX11 1.6.0 XkbFreeGeomKeyAliases(3)
