abc2mtex – Notate tunes stored in ABC notation
A package to notate tunes stored in an ascii format (abc notation, commonly used to notate traditional music). One of the most important aims of ABC notation, and perhaps one that distinguishes it from most, if not all, computer-readable musical languages is that it can be easily read by humans. The package produces files that can be processed with MusicTeX.
