XkbFreeClientMap(3)		 XKB FUNCTIONS		   XkbFreeClientMap(3)

       XkbFreeClientMap	- Free memory used by the client map member of an Xkb-
       DescRec structure

       void  XkbFreeClientMap  (XkbDescPtr  xkb,  unsigned  int	 which,	  Bool

       - xkb  keyboard description containing client map to free

       - which
	      mask identifying components of map to free

       - free_all
	      True => free all client components and map itself

       XkbFreeClientMap	 frees the components of client	map specified by which
       in the XkbDescRec structure specified by	the xkb	parameter and sets the
       corresponding  structure	 component values to NULL. The which parameter
       specifies a combination of the client map masks shown in	Table 1.

       If free_all is True, which is  ignored;	XkbFreeClientMap  frees	 every
       non-NULL	 structure  component  in  the	client	map,  frees  the  Xkb-
       ClientMapRec structure referenced by the	map member of the xkb  parame-
       ter, and	sets the map member to NULL.

		      Table 1 XkbAllocClientMap	Masks
       Mask		    Effect
       XkbKeyTypesMask	    The	 type_count field specifies the	num-
			    ber	of entries to  preallocate  for	 the
			    types  field  of  the client map. If the
			    type_count field is	less than  XkbNumRe-
			    quiredTypes	returns	BadValue.

       XkbKeySymsMask	    The	min_key_code and max_key_code fields
			    of the xkb parameter are used  to  allo-
			    cate  the syms and key_sym_map fields of
			    the	client map. The	fields are allocated
			    to contain the maximum number of entries
			    necessary	  for	  max_key_code	   -
			    min_key_code + 1 keys.

       XkbModifierMapMask   The	min_key_code and max_key_code fields
			    of the xkb parameter are used  to  allo-
			    cate the modmap field of the client	map.
			    The	field is allocated  to	contain	 the
			    maximum  number of entries necessary for
			    max_key_code - min_key_code	+ 1 keys.

       NOTE: The min_key_code and max_key_code fields  of  the	xkb  parameter
       must  be	legal values if	the XkbKeySymsMask or XkbModifierMapMask masks
       are set in the which  parameter.	 If  they  are	not  valid,  XkbAlloc-
       ClientMap returns BadValue.

       The  complete description of an Xkb keyboard is given by	an XkbDescRec.
       The component structures	in the XkbDescRec represent the	major Xkb com-

       typedef struct {
	  struct _XDisplay * display;	   /* connection to X server */
	  unsigned short     flags;	   /* private to Xkb, do not modify */
	  unsigned short     device_spec;  /* device of	interest */
	  KeyCode	     min_key_code; /* minimum keycode for device */
	  KeyCode	     max_key_code; /* maximum keycode for device */
	  XkbControlsPtr     ctrls;	   /* controls */
	  XkbServerMapPtr    server;	   /* server keymap */
	  XkbClientMapPtr    map;	   /* client keymap */
	  XkbIndicatorPtr    indicators;   /* indicator	map */
	  XkbNamesPtr	     names;	   /* names for	all components */
	  XkbCompatMapPtr    compat;	   /* compatibility map	*/
	  XkbGeometryPtr     geom;	   /* physical geometry	of keyboard */
       } XkbDescRec, *XkbDescPtr;

       The  display field points to an X display structure. The	flags field is
       private to the library: modifying flags	may  yield  unpredictable  re-
       sults.  The  device_spec	 field	specifies the device identifier	of the
       keyboard	input device, or XkbUseCoreKeyboard, which specifies the  core
       keyboard	 device.  The min_key_code and max_key_code fields specify the
       least and greatest keycode that can be returned by the keyboard.

       Each structure component	has a corresponding mask bit that is  used  in
       function	 calls to indicate that	the structure should be	manipulated in
       some manner, such as allocating it or freeing it. These masks and their
       relationships to	the fields in the XkbDescRec are shown in Table	2.

	       Table 2 Mask Bits for XkbDescRec
       Mask Bit		      XkbDescRec Field	 Value
       XkbControlsMask	      ctrls		 (1L<<0)
       XkbServerMapMask	      server		 (1L<<1)
       XkbIClientMapMask      map		 (1L<<2)
       XkbIndicatorMapMask    indicators	 (1L<<3)
       XkbNamesMask	      names		 (1L<<4)
       XkbCompatMapMask	      compat		 (1L<<5)
       XkbGeometryMask	      geom		 (1L<<6)
       XkbAllComponentsMask   All Fields	 (0x7f)

       The  map	field of the complete Xkb keyboard description is a pointer to
       the Xkb client map, which is of type XkbClientMapRec:

	  typedef struct {		     /*	Client Map */
	     unsigned char     size_types;   /*	# occupied entries in types */
	     unsigned char     num_types;    /*	# entries in types */
	     XkbKeyTypePtr     types;	     /*	vector of key types used by this keymap	*/
	     unsigned short    size_syms;    /*	length of the syms array */
	     unsigned short    num_syms;     /*	# entries in syms */
	     KeySym *	       syms;	     /*	linear 2d tables of keysyms, 1 per key */
	     XkbSymMapPtr      key_sym_map;  /*	1 per keycode, maps keycode to syms */
	     unsigned char *   modmap;	     /*	1 per keycode, real mods bound to key */
       } XkbClientMapRec, *XkbClientMapPtr;

       BadValue	      An argument is out of range
