XkbCopyKeyType(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		     XkbCopyKeyType(3)

       XkbCopyKeyType -	Copy one XkbKeyTypeRec structures

       Status XkbCopyKeyType (XkbKeyTypePtr from, XkbKeyTypePtr	into);

       - from pointer to XkbKeyTypeRec to be copied

       - into pointer to XkbKeyTypeRec to be changed

       XkbCopyKeyType  copies  the  key	type specified by from to the key type
       specified by into.  Both	must point to legal XkbKeyTypeRec  structures.
       Xkb assumes from	and into point to different places. As a result, over-
       laps can	be fatal.  XkbCopyKeyType frees	any  existing  map,  preserve,
       and  level_names	in into	prior to copying. If any allocation errors oc-
       cur while copying from to into, XkbCopyKeyType returns BadAlloc.	Other-
       wise, XkbCopyKeyType copies from	to into	and returns Success.

       Key types are used to determine the shift level of a key	given the cur-
       rent state of the keyboard. The set of all possible key types  for  the
       Xkb keyboard description	are held in the	types field of the client map,
       whose total size	is stored in size_types, and  whose  total  number  of
       valid  entries is stored	in num_types.  Key types are defined using the
       following structure:

       typedef struct {			  /* Key Type */
	   XkbModsRec	     mods;	  /* modifiers used to compute shift level */
	   unsigned char     num_levels;  /* total # shift levels, do not modify directly */
	   unsigned char     map_count;	  /* # entries in map, preserve	(if non-NULL) */
	   XkbKTMapEntryPtr  map;	  /* vector of modifiers for each shift	level */
	   XkbModsPtr	     preserve;	  /* mods to preserve for corresponding	map entry */
	   Atom		     name;	  /* name of key type */
	   Atom	*	     level_names; /* array of names of each shift level	*/
       } XkbKeyTypeRec,	*XkbKeyTypePtr;

       BadAlloc	      Unable to	allocate storage
