DESCRIPTION
       This program can be used to set various options available in the XKB
       extensions.  This includes such things as mousekeys where one can use the
       numeric pad keys to move the mouse; stickykeys where modifiers like
       control and shift will lock until the next key press (good for one finger
       typing); slowkeys where the keys will not work unless they are pressed
       for a certain amount of time; and bouncekeys in which if a key is pressed
       more than once rapidly, only one key press will be registered.

OPTIONS
       b       The b option controls whether the bell is switched on or off.

       h       The h option (or no options) will type a rather helpful usage
               message - definitely more informative than this unfinished man
               page.

       perkeyrepeat hex-mask
               With this option, hex-mask is a sequence of 64 hex digits,
               representing 32 bytes.  These bytes represent which keys will
               autorepeat, and which will not.  The 8n+kth key will autorepeat
               if the kth bit of the nth byte is set.  See also the r or the
               repeatkey option.

       repeatkeys|r [key-code | rate delay [interval] ]
               The r or repeatkey  option can be used to control the autorepeat
               feature.  By itself, it can switch the autorepeat on or off.
               Followed by a single number, it can be used to switch autorepeat
               on or off for that particular keycode (see also the perkeyrepeat
               option).  Followed by rate, it can be used to set the time in
               milliseconds after the key is pressed before autorepeat will
               start, and optionally the time in milliseconds between the key
               repeats.

BUGS
       In some earlier versions of X, some of the features do not work properly.
       For example, mousekeys acceleration.  Also, the perkeyrepeat option (or
       repeatkey followed by a key code) did not work.  These are due to bugs in
       the XKB extensions.  These bugs are fixed in more recent versions of X.

       Also the man page is woefully incomplete.
