Contains the default binary keyboard definition table used by HCON.
The /usr/lib/hcon/e789_ktbl file contains the default keyboard definition table used by the Host Connection Program (HCON) in binary form.
HCON key names are mapped to specific keys on each supported keyboard. The HCON emulator program uses these key mappings to generate the correct key function on all the supported keyboards. HCON key mappings can be customized using the hconutil command.
Instances of the e789_ktbl file can also occur in user $HOME directories. The keyboard definition table can be customized using the hconutil command. If the user issuing the hconutil command does not specify a name for the new table, the command names the e789_ktbl table and places it in the user $HOME directory. To use a customized table, an HCON user must specify the file name of the table in an HCON session profile.
This file is part of the Host Connection Program (HCON).
