XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)			  XKB FUNCTIONS 		    XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)

NAME
       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias - Add one key alias to an existing keyboard geometry description

SYNOPSIS
       XkbKeyAliasPtr XkbAddGeomKeyAlias ( geom, alias, real )
	     XkbGeometryPtr geom;
	     char * alias;
	     char * real;

ARGUMENTS
       - geom geometry to be updated

       - alias
	      alias to be added

       - real real name to be bound to the new alias

DESCRIPTION
       Xkb  provides functions to add a single new element to the top-level keyboard geometry. In
       each case the num_ * fields of the corresponding structure  is  incremented  by	1.  These
       functions  do  not  change  sz_*  unless there is no more room in the array. Some of these
       functions fill in the values of the element's structure	from  the  arguments.  For  other
       functions, you must explicitly write code to fill the structure's elements.

       The  top-level  geometry  description  includes a list of geometry properties.  A geometry
       property associates an arbitrary string with an equally arbitrary name. Programs that dis-
       play  images  of  keyboards  can use geometry properties as hints, but they are not inter-
       preted by Xkb. No other geometry structures refer to geometry properties.

       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias adds one key alias with the value alias to the geometry geom, and asso-
       ciates  it with the key whose real name is real. XkbAddGeomKeyAlias returns NULL if any of
       the parameters is empty or if it was not able to allocate space for the alias. To allocate
       space for an arbitrary number of aliases, use the XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases function.

STRUCTURES
	   typedef struct {
	       char	       real[XkbKeyNameLength];	 /* this key name must be in the keys array */
	       char	       alias[XkbKeyNameLength];  /* symbolic key name as alias for the key */
	   } XkbKeyAliasRec,*XkbKeyAliasPtr;
