NAME
create-branching-keyboard - create branching keyboards for GOK
SYNOPSIS
create-branching-keyboard infile [n-desired-rows]
DESCRIPTION
create-branching-keyboard takes an input data file and creates a family of branching keyboard XML files in the format that GOK expects. Given an input file named test.data, create-branching-keyboard creates test.data.kbd, which in turn refers to a family of *.kbd files that are created based on data in the input file.
OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: infile The name of the input file. n-desired-rows If specified, create-branching-keyboard attempts to create keyboards with the specified number of rows. The recommended values are between 2 and 6.
EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
create-branching-keyboard can be used to create families of branching keyboards from UTF-8 input files. The format of the input files is as follows: o Lines beginning with '#' are ignored. o The rest of the input file consists of consecutive pairs of lines. The first line of a pair is typically ignored, but should serve as a UTF-8 label describing the "primary key" in the next line. The second line of the pair consists of a single UTF-8 character followed by a ':' color delimiter, and a string of UTF-8 characters to which the initial character may branch. The resulting XML file, after processing, defines .kbd files such that each prefix 'primary key' forms a key on the GOK keyboard whose label is the "primary key" UTF-8 character, and which branches to a keyboard consisting of the following UTF-8 characters, one per key. create-branching-keyboard is particularly useful in creating branching keyboards for ideographic languages. For instance, the primary key for a given line may consist of the UTF-8 character for a 'radical' such as hng.
