SYNOPSIS

abcselect [-?] [-X xrefs] [-V voices] [-P parts] [-Q movements] [-c] [infile]

DESCRIPTION

abcselect reads an input file containing music in abc format and outputs a modified version in abc format.

The output is written to stdout and can be piped directly into abctab2ps. If no input file is given, the input is read from stdin.

All numbers specified in the options refer to the cardinal number of the corresponding info field, not to the actual value of the info field. E.g. the first tune is always specified with "-X 1", regardless of the value in the "X:" field.

OPTIONS

-? print usage message
-X xrefs
  print only tunes specified by xrefs. xrefs must be a comma separated list of tune numbers or ranges, eg. "-X 1-3,6". When omitted, all tunes are printed.
-V voices
