Here you find Daniel Taupin's MusiXTeX, a TeX-based system to typeset music. MusiXTeX is a successor of MusicTeX, which is a successor of MuTeX.
The file set comprises five parts; only the first is needed for most systems.
- TeX-macros, font descriptions, font-definitions and documentation as zip-file musixtex.zip.
Older versions are available too as zip-files named musixtex_nnn.zip.
Zip-files containing only the differences between older versions are named musixtex.iii-nnn.zip for the step from version iii to version nnn.
If you want to use these diff-files you may have to rename them either when ftp'ing them or when unzipping them. The diff-files do not contain the dvi-file of the documention, because you may produce this yourself from the source musixdoc.tex, which is contained if it has been changed.
- Compiled documentation, either as a file ready for HP-Laserjet-printers in musixdoc_lj.zip, or as compressed Postscript-file in musixdoc_ps.zip.
- musixflx.zip, which contains compiled versions of a C-program that is needed to run MusiXTeX, for a lot of different systems. Mac-users may need this file. Dos users will not, as the DOS binary is already contained in musixtex.zip, Unix-users are used to compiling C-programs.
- Some examples, compositions and arrangements by Daniel Taupin in the file musixexa.zip.
- The files musix300.zip, musix360.zip, and musix600.zip, which contain the fonts for MusiXTeX with 300, 360 or 600 dpi. One of these is needed only for TeX-systems which do not generate fonts on the fly.
The base material (the zip-files) is copied from Daniel Taupin's ftp-server. Diff-files are generated by Don Simons.
There is a mailing-list for discussions about MusiXTeX and related software.
This web site also contain other software that enhances the functionality of MusiXTeX.
