XkbTranslateKeySym(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		    XkbTranslateKeySym(3)

NAME
       XkbTranslateKeySym  - Find the string and symbol associated with a keysym for a given key-
       board state

SYNOPSIS
       int XkbTranslateKeySym (Display *dpy, KeySym *sym_inout, unsigned int mods, char *buf, int
	      nbytes, int *extra_rtrn);

ARGUMENTS
       - dpy  connection to X server

       - sym_inout
	      symbol to be translated; result of translation

       - mods modifiers to apply to sym_inout

       - buf  buffer into which returned string is written

       - nbytes
	      size of buffer in bytes

       - extra_rtrn
	      number of bytes overflow

DESCRIPTION
       XkbTranslateKeySym  applies  the transformations specified in mods to the symbol specified
       by sym_inout.  It returns in buf the string, if any, associated with the  keysym  for  the
       current	locale.  If  the transformations in mods changes the keysym, sym_inout is updated
       accordingly. If the string returned is larger than nbytes, a count of bytes that does  not
       fit  into  the  buffer is returned in extra_rtrn. XkbTranslateKeySym returns the number of
       bytes it placed into buf.

RETURN VALUES
       buf	      Returns the string, if any, associated with  the	keysym	for  the  current
		      locale.
