       kbdinfo - obtain information about the status of a console

       kbdinfo [-C DEVICE] getmode [text|graphics]

       kbdinfo [-C DEVICE] gkbmode [raw|xlate|mediumraw|unicode]

       kbdinfo [-C DEVICE] gkbmeta [metabit|escprefix]

       kbdinfo [-C DEVICE] gkbled [scrolllock|numlock|capslock]

       kbdinfo	is  an	interface  to  KDGETMODE,  GKBMODE, GKBMETA and GKBLED
       ioctls.	Its primary use case is to query the status of the given  CON‐
       SOLE  (or  the currently active one, if no -C option is present) from a
       shell script.

       If the final value argument is not specified, kbdinfo  will  print  the
       result  of  the	desired	 ioctl to the standard output.	Otherwise, the
       given value is compared to the actual result, and the utility will exit
       with  a	status code of 0 for a match, 1 otherwise.  No text is printed
       for this style of invocation.
