NAME

X11::Keysyms - Perl module for names of X11 keysyms  

SYNOPSIS

  use X11::Keysyms '%Keysyms', qw(MISCELLANY XKB_KEYS LATIN1);
  %Keysyms_name = reverse %Keysyms;
  $ks = $Keysyms{'BackSpace'};
  $name = $Keysysms_name{$ks};

 

DESCRIPTION

This module exports a hash mapping the names of X11 keysyms, such as 'A' or 'Linefeed' or 'Hangul_J_YeorinHieuh', onto the numbers that represent them. The first argument to 'use' is the name of the variable the hash should be exported into, and the rest are names of subsets of the keysysms to export: one or more of

  'MISCELLANY', 'XKB_KEYS', '3270', 'LATIN1', 'LATIN2',
  'LATIN3', 'LATIN4', 'KATAKANA', 'ARABIC', 'CYRILLIC',
  'GREEK', 'TECHNICAL', 'SPECIAL', 'PUBLISHING', 'APL',
  'HEBREW', 'THAI', 'KOREAN'.

If this list is omitted, the list

  'MISCELLANY', 'XKB_KEYS', 'LATIN1', 'LATIN2', 'LATIN3',
  'LATIN4', 'GREEK'

is used.
