This is the README file for the ltxkeys package.
Version 0.0.3c, 2012/11/17
LOCATION ON CTAN
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.

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.
