Here you find Daniel Taupin's MusicTeX a TeX-based system to typeset music.
The package consists of three parts.
- the TeX-macros, -font descriptions, -fonts for 300dpi printers, font-
definitions and the documentation as zip-file musictex.zip or as com-
pressed tar-file musictex-nnn.tar.gz if nnn is the version number.
Older versions are available too as zip-files named musictex.nnn, as well
as zip-files containing only the differences between older versions named
musictex.iii-nnn.zip (for the step from version iii to version nnn).
Because some people don't bother about bandwidth and simply use "mget *"
I've moved older versions to the directory older-versions and diff-files
to the directory diff-files. I hope that it is not neccessary to put zip-
and tar-files into different directories to make it not so easy to fetch
more than one needs.
If you want to use these diff-files you may have to rename them either
when ftp'ing them or when unzip'ing them. The diff-files do not contain
the dvi-file of the documention, because this may be produced by yourself
from the source musicdoc.tex, which is contained if it has been changed.
- some examples, compositions and arrangements by Daniel Taupin named either
musicexa.zip or musicexa-nnn.tar.gz
Version handling and diff-files follow the same rules as for musictex.
- fonts, font-metrics, ... for (some) other resolutions than 300 dpi
in musicpk.zip or musicpk-nnn.tar.gz
The base material (the zip-files) is copied from Daniel Taupins ftp-server
at hprib.lps.u-psud.fr. The tar- and diff-files are generated by me.
There is a mailing-list for discussions about MusicTeX (and MuTeX). To
subscribe to this list send a mail to email@example.com contain-
ing the word subscribe in the body of the mail.
The directory software (only at ftp.gmd.de) points at some software on
top of MusicTeX like abc2mtex or midi2tex.
musictex – Typesetting music with TeX
MusicTeX is a set of macros, that first demonstrated the technique
of simultaneous two-dimensional typesetting as applied to music.
MusicTeX has its shortcomings (notably in the area of slurs), and
is now largely superseded by MusiXTeX.
