XtSetKeyTranslator(3Xt)   XT FUNCTIONS    XtSetKeyTranslator(3Xt)


     XtSetKeyTranslator, XtTranslateKeycode, XtRegisterCase-
     Converter, XtConvertCase - convert KeySym to KeyCodes


     void XtSetKeyTranslator(Display *display, XtKeyProc proc);

     void XtTranslateKeycode(Display *display, KeyCode keycode,
          Modifiers modifiers, Modifiers *modifiers_return,
          KeySym *keysym_return);

     void XtRegisterCaseConverter(Display *display, XtCaseProc
          proc, KeySym start, KeySym stop);

     void XtConvertCase(Display *display, KeySym keysym, KeySym
          *lower_return, KeySym *upper_return);


     display   Specifies the display.

     keycode   Specifies the KeyCode to translate.

     keysym    Specifies the KeySym to convert.

               Returns the resulting KeySym.

               Returns the lowercase equivalent of the KeySym.

               Returns the uppercase equivalent of the KeySym.

     modifiers Specifies the modifiers to the KeyCode.

               Returns a mask that indicates the modifiers actu-
               ally used to generate the KeySym.

     proc      Specifies the procedure that is to perform key
               translations or conversions.

     start     Specifies the first KeySym for which this con-
               verter is valid.

     stop      Specifies the last KeySym for which this converter
               is valid.


     The XtSetKeyTranslator function sets the specified procedure
     as the current key translator. The default translator is
     XtTranslateKey, an XtKeyProc that uses Shift and Lock

XtSetKeyTranslator(3Xt)   XT FUNCTIONS    XtSetKeyTranslator(3Xt)

     modifiers with the interpretations defined by the core pro-
     tocol. It is provided so that new translators can call it to
     get default KeyCode-to-KeySym translations and so that the
     default translator can be reinstalled.

     The XtTranslateKeycode function passes the specified argu-
     ments directly to the currently registered KeyCode to KeySym

     The XtRegisterCaseConverter registers the specified case
     converter. The start and stop arguments provide the
     inclusive range of KeySyms for which this converter is to be
     called. The new converter overrides any previous converters
     for KeySyms in that range. No interface exists to remove
     converters; you need to register an identity converter. When
     a new converter is registered, the Intrinsics  refreshes the
     keyboard state if necessary. The default converter under-
     stands case conversion for all KeySyms defined in the core

     The XtConvertCase function calls the appropriate converter
     and returns the results. A user-supplied XtKeyProc may need
     to use this function.
