This is M-Tx (Music-from-TeXt), version 0.62a (2016-05-06). M-Tx is a preprocessor for PMX that facilitates inputting lyrics. It builds the PMX input file based on a language very similar to PMX. M-Tx includes most of PMX's functionality, but it also permits in-line PMX commands to give access to virtually all of PMX. The author of M-Tx is Dirk Laurie (email@example.com). To install (on TDS-compliant TeX systems): + unzip tex-archive/install/m-tx.tds.zip at the root of a texmf tree and, if necessary, update the filename database; e.g., texhash texmf. Documentation for M-Tx is installed under doc/generic/tmx. You must use an unzipping program that converts text files to the text-file format of your platform, such as "unzip -a ... " on Linux. + *either* copy the executables appropriate for your platform (Windows/32bit, Windows/64bit, OSX) to a folder on the executable PATH and ensure it has execute permission + *or* on any Unix-like system with gcc and standard development tools installed: unpack mtx-0.61.tar.gz (anywhere), move to the resulting mtx-0.61 directory, and do ./configure [--prefix=$HOME] make (or make -f Makefile.orig if you have fpc installed) make install (as root, if necessary) Documentation for M-Tx is installed under doc/generic/m-tx Many examples of M-Tx and MusiXTeX typesetting may be found at the Werner Icking Music Archive at http://icking-music-archive.org/ Support for users of MusiXTeX and related software may be obtained via the MusiXTeX mail list at http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/tex-music M-Tx may be freely copied, duplicated and used in conformance to the MIT License; see included file LICENSE.

M-Tx – A preprocessor for pmx
M-Tx is a preprocessor to pmx, which is itself a preprocessor to musixtex, a music typesetting system. The prime motivation to the development of M-Tx was to provide lyrics for music to be typeset. In fact, pmx now provides a lyrics interface, but M-Tx continues in use by those who prefer its language.
