Since keyreader is based on xkeyval i wonder if it’s possible to make it wokr with xkvview which comes with xkeyval.

% not recorded


The example shows that keys defined with the xkeyval way are recognized but not the ones defined via keyreader. I thought keyreader uses the xkeyval commands internally so I expect it to be also in the \xkvview{} list

keyreader works with xkvview. Load keyreader before xkvview. Here is an example:

  bool/space travel/true;

enter image description here

I have to investigate why keyc is shown twice in this table.


keyc is shown twice because of a bug in the package xkvview. I provide a patch below:


The patch should be inserted at the end of xkvview or after loading xkvview.

Thanks for the fast response. I didn’t thick about the loading order. Sometimes it’s a too simple solution … I assume that you’ll fix the bug in a future release, won’t you? – Tobi Mar 20 '12 at 10:28
@Tobi: I am not the maintainer of xkvview package. I will inform the maintainer. I have always wanted to write the keyreader-view package, because I would like to improve xkvview in some ways. – Ahmed Musa Mar 20 '12 at 13:13
Ahh sorry, I misread your answer and thought it was a keyreader bug O:-) Thanks for informing the maintainer :-) – Tobi Mar 20 '12 at 13:46
