minput_get_command(3m17n)	 Version 1.5.5	     minput_get_command(3m17n)

       minput_get_command - Get	information about input	method command(s).

       MPlist* minput_get_command (MSymbol language, MSymbol name, MSymbol

       Get information about input method command(s).

       The minput_get_command()	function returns information about the command
       command of the input method specified by	language and name.  An input
       method command is a pseudo key event to which one or more actual	input
       key sequences are assigned.

       There are two kinds of commands,	global and local. A global command has
       a global	definition, and	the description	and the	key assignment may be
       inherited by a local command. Each input	method defines a local command
       which has a local key assignment. It may	also declare a local command
       that inherits the definition of a global	command	of the same name.

       If language is Mt and name is Mnil, this	function returns information
       about a global command. Otherwise information about a local command is

       If command is Mnil, information about all commands is returned.

       The return value	is a well-formed plist (Property List) of this format:


       NAME is a symbol	representing the command name.

       DESCRIPTION is an M-text	describing the command,	or Mnil	if the command
       has no description.

       STATUS is a symbol representing how the key assignment is decided. The
       value is	Mnil (the default key assignment), Mcustomized (the key
       assignment is customized	by per-user customization file), or
       Mconfigured (the	key assignment is set by the call of
       minput_config_command()). For a local command only, it may also be
       Minherited (the key assignment is inherited from	the corresponding
       global command).

       KEYSEQ is a plist of one	or more	symbols	representing a key sequence
       assigned	to the command.	If there's no KEYSEQ, the command is currently
       disabled	(i.e. no key sequence can trigger actions of the command).

       If command is not Mnil, the first element of the	returned plist
       contains	the information	about command.

       If the requested	information was	found, a pointer to a non-empty	plist
       is returned. As the plist is kept in the	library, the caller must not
       modify nor free it.

       Otherwise (the specified	input method or	the specified command does not
       exist), NULL is returned.
