XkbAllocGeomDoodads(3)						   XKB FUNCTIONS					    XkbAllocGeomDoodads(3)

NAME
XkbAllocGeomDoodads - Allocate doodads that are global to a keyboard geometry SYNOPSIS
Status XkbAllocGeomDoodads ( geom, num_needed ) XkbGeometryPtr geom; int num_needed; ARGUMENTS
- geom geometry for which doodads should be allocated - num_needed number of new doodads 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. XkbAllocGeomDoodads allocates num_needed doodads and adds them to the specified geometry geom. No initialization of the doodads is done. DIAGNOSTICS
BadAlloc Unable to allocate storage BadValue An argument is out of range X Version 11 libX11 1.2.1 XkbAllocGeomDoodads(3)

NAME
XkbAllocGeomSectionDoodads - Allocate doodads that are specific to a section SYNOPSIS
Status XkbAllocGeomSectionDoodads (XkbSectionPtr section, int num_needed); ARGUMENTS
- section section for which doodads should be allocated - num_needed number of new doodads required DESCRIPTION

Shopt -s histappend

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file. # When the shell exits, append to the history file instead of overwriting it shopt -s histappend (3 Replies)
