NAME

       XkbAllocKeyboard -  Creates a keyboard description from scratch

SYNOPSIS

       XkbDescRec XkbAllocKeyboard (void);

DESCRIPTION

       Applications   seldom   need   to   directly  allocate  a  keyboard  description;  calling
       XkbGetKeyboard usually suffices. In the event you need to create  a  keyboard  description
       from scratch, however, use XkbAllocKeyboard rather than directly calling malloc.

       If  XkbAllocKeyboard  fails  to  allocate  the  keyboard  description,  it  returns  NULL.
       Otherwise,  it  returns  a  pointer  to  an  empty  keyboard  description  structure.  The
       device_spec field will have been initialized to XkbUseCoreKbd. You may then either fill in
       the structure components  or  use  Xkb  functions  to  obtain  values  for  the  structure
       components from a keyboard device.
