pgfopts - LaTeX package options with pgfkeys ============================================ Using key-value options for packages and macros is a good way of handling large numbers of options with a clean interface. The `pgfkeys` package provides a very well designed system for defining and using keys, but does not make this available for handling LaTeX class and package options. The `pgfopts` package adds this ability to `pgfkeys`, in the same way that `kvoptions` extends the `keyval` package. Installation ------------ The package is supplied in `.dtx` format and as a pre-extracted zip file, `pgfopts.tds.zip`. The later is most convenient for most users: simply unzip this in your local `texmf` directory. If you want to unpack the `.dtx` yourself, running `tex pgfopts.dtx` will extract the package whereas 'latex pgfopts.dtx will extract it and also typeset the documentation. Typesetting the documentation requires a number of packages in addition to those needed to use the package. This is mainly because of the number of demonstration items included in the text. To compile the documentation without error, you will need the packages: - `csquotes` - `helvet` - `hypdoc` - `listings` - `lmodern` - `mathpazo` - `microtype`

pgfopts – LaTeX package options with pgfkeys
The pgfkeys package (part of the pgf distribution) is a well-designed way of defining and using large numbers of keys for key-value syntaxes. However, pgfkeys itself does not offer means of handling LaTeX class and package options. This package adds such option handling to pgfkeys, in the same way that kvoptions adds the same facility to the LaTeX standard keyval package.
