% Draw parameterised pig.
% This code can/should be improved by using the pgfkey library.




% We're not using pgfkeys, and we've chosen to use keyval
% for option parsing. The following define the keys for a
% pig keyval family. The main purpose of the keys and
% default values is that we want to be able to draw pigs
% with predefined colours for certain parts and predefined
% scaling factors for line thickness.
