     xkbprint - print an XKB keyboard description


     xkbprint [options] source [ output_file ]


     The xkbprint comman 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 specified,
     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 display (e.g.:0), xkbprint appends
     the appropriate prefix to the display specification, replac-
     ing the colon with a dash.  For a local display, xkprint
     uses server-n where n is the number of the display.
