Directory macros/generic/bagpipe

Bagpipe.tex is a macro-package for use on top of MusicTeX or        
MusixTeX, which are macro-packages for use with TeX or LaTeX. TeX   
is a language designed for typesetting technical documents, 
and is available for most platforms. Musi[c|x]TeX    
were written by Daniel Taupin, who is now deceased. They are          
available via anonymous ftp at CTAN sites and the Werner Icking     
Music Archive (WIMA). See WIMA for installation instructions.        

Version 3.02 of bagpipe.tex works with MusicTeX version 5.20 and    
MusixTeX version T.89. Since it redefines a few Musi(c|x)TeX        
macros, it may not work with later versions without modification.   
It definitely does not work with versions of MusicTeX earlier than  

MusixTeX differs from MusicTeX in that it relies on a three pass
system to adjust the spacing instead of glue (stretchable space).
MusixTeX is also the version under active development and has
many features which MusicTeX does not. Most of these are
irrelevant for bagpipe music.
