This is the README file for the keyval2e package. VERSION Version 0.0.2, August 2011 SUMMARY The keyval2e package provides lightweight and robust facilities for creating and managing keys. Its machinery isn't as extensive as that of, eg, ltxkeys package, but it is equally robust. Ease of use and speed of processing are the two main motives of this package. Some, indeed many, applications of the key-value syntax (while they call for robustness) don't require the full armor of key-value processing as found in, eg, the ltxkeys package. Ordinary, boolean, and choice keys can be created using only one command (\kve@definekeys). Keys can be initialized (with the command \kve@setdefaults) as soon as they are created or later. And in any run the default values of keys can be used to set keys that have no current values. The latter task is accomplished by the command \kve@setafterdefaults, meaning 'set keys with the current values after those without current values have been initialized/set with their default values'. Normally, keys are set with the re-entrant command \kve@setkeys. LICENSE Copyright (c) 2011 Ahmed Musa. This software is author-maintained.

keyval2e – A lightweight and robust key-value parser
The package provides lightweight and robust facilities for creating and managing keys. Its machinery isn’t as extensive as that of, e.g., the ltxkeys package, but it is equally robust; ease of use and speed of processing are the design aims of the package.
