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 fin
ger 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 regis

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

perkeyrepeat hex mask
With this option, hex mask is a sequence of 64 hex digits, rep
resenting 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 autore
peat 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.

In some earlier versions of X, some of the features do not work prop
erly. 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.
