The keyvaltable Package

Copyright (C) 2016-2018 Richard Grewe

Released under the Project Public License version 1.2 or later

Purpose

The main goal of the keyvaltable package is to offer means for typesetting tables easily and yet still looking rather nicely in a way that separates content from presentation and with re-usable layout for tables of the same type. For this purpose, the package provides the environment KeyValTable, which allows one to typeset tables that have a previously defined column layout and whose rows can be produced in a key-value fashion.
