       setleds   [-v]   [-L]  [-D]  [-F]  [{+|-}num]  [{+|-}caps]


       Setleds reports and changes the led flag settings of a  VT
       (namely  NumLock, CapsLock and ScrollLock).  Without argu­
       ments, setleds prints the current  settings.   With  argu­
       ments,  it  sets or clears the indicated flags (and leaves
       the others unchanged). The settings before and  after  the
       change are reported if the -v flag is given.

       The led flag settings are specific for each VT (and the VT
       corresponding to stdin is used).

       By default (or with option -F), setleds will  only  change
       the  VT  flags  (and their setting may be reflected by the
       keyboard leds).

       With option -D, setleds will change both the VT flags  and
       their  default  settings  (so that a subsequent reset will
       not undo the change).  This might be useful for people who
       always want to have numlock set.

       With  option  -L, setleds will not touch the VT flags, but
       only change the leds.  From this moment on, the leds  will
       no  longer  reflect  the VT flags (but display whatever is
       put into them). The command setleds  -L  (without  further
       arguments)  will  restore  the situation in which the leds
       reflect the VT flags.

       One might use setleds in /etc/rc to define the initial and
       default state of NumLock, e.g. by
            for tty in $INITTY; do
                 setleds -D +num < $tty


       -num +num
              Clear  or  set  NumLock.   (At present, the NumLock
              setting influences  the  interpretation  of  keypad
              keys.   Pressing  the  NumLock  key complements the
              NumLock setting.)

       -caps +caps
              Clear or set CapsLock.  (At present,  the  CapsLock
              setting  complements  the Shift key when applied to
              letters.  Pressing the CapsLock key complements the
              CapsLock setting.)
