NAME
hilkbd -- HIL keyboard device SYNOPSIS
hilkbd* at hil? wskbd* at hilkbd? option HILKBD_LAYOUT=XXX DESCRIPTION
This driver supports HIL keyboards within the wscons(4) framework. It doesn't provide direct device driver entry points, but makes its func- tions available through the internal wskbd(4) interface. The hilkbd driver supports a number of different key mappings. By default, the layout corresponding to the keyboard model as probed by the hilkbd driver will be used. A different layout can be chosen either with the kernel option ``HILKBD_LAYOUT'' at compile time, or with the wsconsctl(8) utility (variable: ``keyboard.encoding'') at runtime. The supported key mappings are at this time: KB_DE (de) German with ``dead accents''. KB_FR (fr) French with ``dead accents''. KB_SV (sv) Swedish. KB_UK (uk) British. KB_US (us) English/US keyboard mapping. The KB_DE mapping can be used in the KB_NODEAD (.nodead) variant. This switches off the ``dead accents''. EXAMPLES
To set a Swedish keyboard mapping, use wsconsctl keyboard.encoding=sv. To set it at kernel build time, regardless of what keyboard is plugged, add the following to the kernel configuration file: option HILKBD_LAYOUT="KB_SV" SEE ALSO
hil(4), intro(4), wskbd(4), wsconsctl(8) BUGS
The list of built-in mappings is incomplete and has grown as people submitted information about their particular layout. The Swedish and British layout have been reconstructed from tables in the old HIL code present in the hp300 port, and have not been tested. BSD

NAME
wskbd -- generic keyboard support in wscons SYNOPSIS
wskbd* at pckbd? console ? mux 1 (standard PC keyboard) wskbd* at ukbd? console ? mux 1 (USB keyboard) wskbd* at lkkbd? console ? mux 1 (DEC LK200/400 serial keyboard) wskbd0 at akbd? console ? mux 1 (Apple ADB keyboard) wskbd0 at nextkbd? console ? mux 1 (NeXT keyboard) wskbd* at vrkiu? console ? mux 1 (NEC VR4000 series HPC keyboard) wskbd* at skbd? console ? mux 1 (keyboard of misc hpcmips handheld devices) wskbd* at btkbd? console ? mux 1 (Bluetooth keyboard) DESCRIPTION
The wskbd driver handles common tasks for keyboards within the wscons(4) framework. It is attached to the hardware specific keyboard drivers and provides their connection to ``wsdisplay'' devices and a character device interface. The common keyboard support consists of: o Mapping from keycodes (defined by the specific keyboard driver) to keysyms (hardware independent, defined in /usr/include/dev/wscons/wsksymdef.h). o Handling of ``compose'' sequences. Characters commonly not present as separate key on keyboards can be generated after either a special ``compose'' key is pressed or a ``dead accent'' character is used. o Certain translations, like turning an ``ALT'' modifier into an ``ESC'' prefix. o Automatic key repetition (``typematic''). o Parameter handling for ``keyboard bells''. o Generation of ``keyboard events'' for use by X servers. The wskbd driver provides a number of ioctl functions to control key maps and other parameters. These functions are accessible though the associated ``wsdisplay'' device as well. A complete list is in /usr/include/dev/wscons/wsconsio.h. The wsconsctl(8) utility allows to access key maps and other variables. The console locator in the configuration line refers to the device's use as input part of the operating system console. A device specifica- tion containing a positive value here will only match if the device is in use as system console. (The console device selection in early sys- tem startup is not influenced.) This way, the console device can be connected to a known wskbd device instance. Ioctls The following ioctl(2) calls are provided by the wskbd driver or by devices which use it. Their definitions are found in dev/wscons/wsconsio.h. WSKBDIO_GTYPE Get the keyboard type. WSKBDIO_COMPLEXBELL, WSKBDIO_SETBELL, WSKBDIO_GETBELL, WSKBDIO_SETDEFAULTBELL, WSKBDIO_GETDEFAULTBELL (struct wsmouse_repeat) Get and set keyboard bell settings. WSKBDIO_SETKEYREPEAT, WSKBDIO_GETKEYREPEAT, WSKBDIO_SETDEFAULTKEYREPEAT, WSKBDIO_GETDEFAULTKEYREPEAT (struct wskbd_keyrepeat_data) Get and set keyboard autorepeat settings. WSKBDIO_SETLEDS, WSKBDIO_GETLEDS (int) Get and set keyboard LED settings. WSKBDIO_GETMAP, WSKBDIO_SETMAP (struct wskbd_map_data) Get and set keyboard keymapping settings. WSKBDIO_GETENCODING, WSKBDIO_SETENCODING (kbd_t) Get and set keyboard encoding settings. WSKBDIO_GETKEYCLICK, WSKBDIO_SETKEYCLICK (int) Get and set keyboard keyclick settings. WSKBDIO_SETVERSION (int) Set the wscons_event protocol version. The default is 0 for binary compatibility. The latest version is always available as WSKBD_EVENT_VERSION, and is currently 1. All new code should use a call similar to the below to ensure the correct version is returned. int ver = WSKBD_EVENT_VERSION; if (ioctl(fd, WSKBDIO_SETVERSION, &ver) == -1) err(EXIT_FAILURE, "cannot set version"); FILES
