abc2mtex version 1.6.1
abc2mtex is a package designed to notate tunes stored in an ascii
format (henceforth abc notation). It was designed primarily for
folk and traditional tunes of Western European origin (such as
Irish, English and Scottish) which can be written on one stave in
standard classical notation. However, it can be used for multiple
staves and should be extendible to many other types of music. It
can also be used as a fast preprocessor for MusicTeX or MusiXTeX.
For a more information about abc, a list of available software,
and a list and index of abc tune collections available on the
internet have a look at
the abc home page.
