NAME

chord2html - Convert CHORD files to HTML

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

chord2html [-d dirname] [-h] [-l] [-n] [-o filename] [-q] [-s filename] [-T format] [-t] [-V] [-v] input_file

DESCRIPTION

chord2html converts CHORD input files (the .chopro files in OLGA) to HTML formatted files. The HTML files are similar to the PostScript documents produced by CHORD; chord2html reads a text file containing the lyrics and chords of a song to produce a page with chord names above the words and a graphical representation of the chords at the end of the song.

OPTIONS

-d dirname Set the directory where chord images will be stored. If the directory doesn’t exist, it will be created. The default is the current directory.
-h Show a brief description of the available command line options.
-l Print lyrics only.
-n Don’t overwrite chord image files that already exist.
-o filename Set the output filename. If not specified, the output will be written in stdout.
-q Quiet mode (don’t print warnings).
-s filename Set a cascading style sheet file name. If not specified, chord2html.css will be used.
-T format Set the image format for the generated chord grids. Valid formats are gif for Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) images and png for Portable Network Graphics (PNG) images. If not specified, PNG images will be generated.
-t Add a timestamp line at the end of the generated page.
-V Print the version number and exit.
-v Run in verbose mode.

BUGS

Multi-song chopro files are not correctly parsed.

NOTES

The HTML file generated by chord2html uses tables to align chord names and words using proportional fonts, so it will not work with text browsers that don’t handle tables (it works fine with recent versions of lynx).
