loadkeys reads the file specified by filename, and modifies the keyboard streams module's translation tables. If no file is specified, and the keyboard is a Type-4 keyboard, a default file for the layout indicated by the DIP switches on the keyboard. The file is in the format specified by keytables.5
If the layout code in the DIP switches on the keyboard has the hexadecimal value 0xdd, the file loaded by loadkeys by default is /usr/share/lib/keytables/layout_dd. These files specify only the entries that change between the different Type-4 keyboard layouts.
dumpkeys writes, to the standard output, the current contents of the keyboard streams module's translation tables, in the format specified by keytables.5
The -e option requires EEPROM rev 2.6 or later.
