NAME
kbin – external keyboard input

SYNOPSIS
bind –a #Ι /dev
/dev/kbin

DESCRIPTION
The kbin device is a PC driver that serves a one–level directory containing a single file, kbin, which can be used to send keyboard scan codes to the kernel.

Kbin is necessary for usb(4) drivers that handle keyboards. Keyboard input is processed as described in cons(3). The scan codes correspond to the PC keyboard used by the cons(3) driver and can be translated by the kbmap(3) device.
