abcm2ps

Build Status

Overview

abcm2ps is a C program which converts music tunes from the ABC music notation to PostScript or SVG.

Based on the abc2ps version 1.2.5 from Michael Methfessel, it was first developped to print barock organ scores that have independant voices played on one or many keyboards and a pedal-board (the 'm' of abcm2ps stands for many or multi staves/voices). Since this time, it has evolved so it can render many more music kinds.

Features

The main features of abcm2ps are quite the same as the abc2ps ones, but they are closer to the ABC draft 2.2 (February 2013): http://abcnotation.com/wiki/abc:standard:v2.2

Installation and usage

The installation procedure is described in the file INSTALL. To build the program with default settings run

    ./configure
    make

Basically, the program usage is:

abcm2ps [options] file1 [file1_options] file2 [file2_options] ...

where file1, file2, .. are the ABC input files. This will generate a Postscript file (default name: Out.ps). Run abcm2ps -h to know the list of the command line options.
