     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.
