xkbprint – print an XKB keyboard description


xkbprint [options] source [ output_file ]


The xkbprint command generates a printable or encapsulated PostScript
description of the XKB keyboard description specified by source. The
source can be any compiled keymap (.xkm) file that includes a geometry
description or an X display specification. If an output_file is speci‐
fied, xkbprint writes to it. If no output file is specified, xkbprint
creates replaces the extension of the source file with .ps or .eps
depending on the requested format. If the source is a non-local X dis‐
play (e.g.:0), xkbprint appends the appropriate prefix to the display
specification, replacing the colon with a dash. For a local display,
xkprint uses server-n where n is the number of the display.
