NAME

       XStringToKeysym, XKeysymToString, XKeycodeToKeysym, XKeysymToKeycode,
       XConvertCase - convert keysyms

SYNTAX

       KeySym XStringToKeysym(char *string);

       char *XKeysymToString(KeySym keysym);

       KeySym XKeycodeToKeysym(Display *display, KeyCode keycode, int index);

       KeyCode XKeysymToKeycode(Display *display, KeySym keysym);

       void XConvertCase(KeySym keysym, KeySym *lower_return, KeySym
              *upper_return);

ARGUMENTS

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       index     Specifies the element of KeyCode vector.

       keycode   Specifies the KeyCode.

       keysym    Specifies the KeySym that is to be searched for or converted.

       lower_return
                 Returns the lowercase form of keysym, or keysym.

       string    Specifies the name of the KeySym that is to be converted.

       upper_return
                 Returns the uppercase form of keysym, or keysym.

DESCRIPTION

       Standard KeySym names are obtained from <X11/keysymdef.h> by removing
       the XK_ prefix from each name.  KeySyms that are not part of the Xlib
       standard also may be obtained with this function.  The set of KeySyms
       that are available in this manner and the mechanisms by which Xlib
       obtains them is implementation-dependent.

       If the KeySym name is not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the
       result is implementation-dependent.  If the specified string does not
       match a valid KeySym, XStringToKeysym returns NoSymbol.

       The returned string is in a static area and must not be modified.  The
       returned string is in the Host Portable Character Encoding.  If the
       specified KeySym is not defined, XKeysymToString returns a NULL.

       The XKeycodeToKeysym function uses internal Xlib tables and returns the
       KeySym defined for the specified KeyCode and the element of the KeyCode
       vector.  If no symbol is defined, XKeycodeToKeysym returns NoSymbol.
       XKeycodeToKeysym predates the XKB extension. If you want to lookup a
       KeySym while using XKB you have to use XkbKeycodeToKeysym.

       If the specified KeySym is not defined for any KeyCode,
       XKeysymToKeycode returns zero.

       The XConvertCase function returns the uppercase and lowercase forms of
       the specified Keysym, if the KeySym is subject to case conversion;
       otherwise, the specified KeySym is returned to both lower_return and
       upper_return.  Support for conversion of other than Latin and Cyrillic
       KeySyms is implementation-dependent.
