itemap(1M)itemap(1M)NAMEitemap - load an ITE (Internal Terminal Emulator) keyboard mapping.
The command loads a keyboard mapping into the ITE (the graphics console
driver), or displays ITE keyboard mappings. is run by automatically.
It is not usually explicitly invoked by the user.
Dump a keymap to standard output in hexadecimal notation.
Load the specified keymap into the kernel mapping table
used for keyboards.
Interactively prompt for a

file for all mapping names beginning with a
prefix. Each of these names is displayed,
and one must be selected.

This information is used by the ITE
to perform ISO 7-to-8 bit conver‐
sion. Keymap names added by users,
should use the same suffixes as
those already used in For example, a
French keyboard mapping can be named
for consistency with existing and
mappings. A mapping called would
not match any suffix patterns found
by itemap, and would result in
incorrect ISO 7-to-8 bit conversion.
