       input-kbd - print or modify keyboard maps for input devices


       input-kbd num

       input-kbd  [-f file] devnr


       input-kbd  prints  the  keyboard  map  of  kernel input device devnr on
       stdout.  The keyboard map maps scancodes to keycodes.

       If the device supports a keyboard map, it is printed in  the  following
       format (from the output for an AT keyboard):

                      0x0001 =  67  # KEY_F9
                      0x0002 =  65  # KEY_F7
                      0x0003 =  63  # KEY_F5
                      0x0004 =  61  # KEY_F3

       If the device does not support a keyboard map, input-kbd just lists the
       keys and buttons supported by the device, like this (for a mouse):

                      bits: BTN_LEFT
                      bits: BTN_RIGHT
                      bits: BTN_MIDDLE


       devnr  The index of the input device to use  (0  for  /dev/input/event0
              and so on).

       -f file
              Read  a keyboard map from a file and reconfigure the device with
              this map.  The map file uses the same format as  the  output  of
              this  command.  Key names are also accepted instead of keycodes,
              like this:

                   0x0001 = KEY_F9
