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 functions available through the internal
     wskbd(4) interface.

     The hilkbd driver supports a number of different key mappings.  By default, the layout cor-
     responding 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 configu-
     ration 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.
