This is the README file for the ltxkeys package. VERSION Version 0.0.3c, 2012/11/17 LOCATION ON CTAN macros/latex/contrib/ltxkeys SUMMARY The ltxkeys package provides facilities for creating and managing keys in the sense of the keyval and xkeyval packages, but it is intended to be more robust and faster. Its robustness emanates from its ability to preserve braces in key values throughout parsing. The need to preserve braces in key values emerges often in parsing keys. This is often the case in, eg, the xwatermark package. Depending on the functions called by the user, this package is faster than the xkeyval package because, among other features, it avoids character-wise parsing of key values (which is called selective sanitization by the xkeyval package). It also provides many new functions for defining and managing keys. LICENSE Copyright (c) 2011-2012 Ahmed Musa. This software is author-maintained.

ltxkeys – A robust key parser for LaTeX
The package provides facilities for creating and managing keys in the sense of the keyval and xkeyval packages, but it is intended to be more robust and faster. Its robustness comes from its ability to preserve braces in key values throughout parsing. The need to preserve braces in key values arises often in parsing keys (for example, in the xwatermark package). The package is faster than xkeyval package because (among other things) it avoids character-wise parsing of key values (called “selective sanitization” by the xkeyval package).
The package also provides functions for defining and managing keys.
