Simple music-from-text language for use with PMX/MusiXTeX
M-Tx is a preprocessor for PMX (which is, in turn, a MusiXTeX preprocessor)
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.

This is M-Tx 0.52, the latest release of a music-from-text translator,

The M-Tx package contains a description of the M-Tx language and a
preprocessor that converts it to the PMX language. The description can
be printed if you have access to one of the following:
1. A HP Laserjet-compatible printer.
2. A Postscript printer.
M-Tx Documentation Package

all the sources for generating the Users's Manual (mtxdoc.?), its index

'?' might be 'dvi', 'ps', 'pdf' or 'lj'.
On a GNU system (e.g. Linux; or Cygwin running under Windows) you need
