prepmx - preprocessor for PMX, easy music typesetting program
prepmx [options] jobname [outdir/] [stylefile]
M-Tx is an easy to use preprocessor language for the PMX music typeset-
ting program, aimed at people who are not experts. For an easy exam-
ple, have a look at the following example:
c2+ e4 g | b4d- c1 d c2 |
c8 g+ e g c- g+ e g | d g f g c- g+ e g |
For syntax reference, please look at the M-Tx manual written by Dirk
Laurie, the creator of the M-Tx language and the author of prepmx(1),
its command-line utility.
prepmx processes the file jobname.mtx to generate jobname.pmx. You can
then process this file using the pmxab(1) command, which is a pre-
processor for MusiXTeX.
outdir/ is the directory where `pmx' will put the final .tex file. Note
that the trailing slash is mandatory. You can provide a stylefile for
M-Tx. If omitted, the file `mtxstyle.txt' in the current directory is
used, if there is one.
Options can also be specified in a `Options:' line in the preamble,
which takes precedence over the command line.
-b disable unbeamVocal
-c disable doChords

If no error was found, prepmx exits with return code 0. In case of an
error, the line number of the processed line is returned. This may not
always be the line containing the actual error. A return status of
10000 means that the input file was empty or could not be opened.
