XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		 XkbAddGeomKeyAlias(3)

       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias - Add one key alias to an existing keyboard geometry

       XkbKeyAliasPtr XkbAddGeomKeyAlias (XkbGeometryPtr  geom,	 char  *alias,
	      char *real);

       - geom geometry to be updated

       - alias
	      alias to be added

       - real real name to be bound to the new alias

       Xkb  provides  functions	 to  add a single new element to the top-level
       keyboard geometry. In each case the num_ * fields of the	 corresponding
       structure  is  incremented  by  1.  These  functions do not change sz_*
       unless there is no more room in the array. Some of these functions fill
       in  the values of the element's structure from the arguments. For other
       functions, you must explicitly write code to fill the structure's  ele‐

       The  top-level geometry description includes a list of geometry proper‐
       ties.  A geometry property  associates  an  arbitrary  string  with  an
       equally	arbitrary  name. Programs that display images of keyboards can
       use geometry properties as hints, but they are not interpreted by  Xkb.
       No other geometry structures refer to geometry properties.

       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias adds one key alias with the value alias to the geom‐
       etry geom, and associates it with the key  whose	 real  name  is	 real.
       XkbAddGeomKeyAlias returns NULL if any of the parameters is empty or if
       it was not able to allocate space for the alias. To allocate space  for
       an  arbitrary  number  of aliases, use the XkbAllocGeomKeyAliases func‐

	   typedef struct {
	       char	       real[XkbKeyNameLength];	 /∗ this key name must be in the keys array */
	       char	       alias[XkbKeyNameLength];	 /∗ symbolic key name as alias for the key */
	   } XkbKeyAliasRec,*XkbKeyAliasPtr;
