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 4.7. 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. In this distribution: bagpipe.tex : the macro package. bagpipe.txt : same as above with a common extension bagpipe.ini : for generating a bagpipe format bagpipex.ini : for generating a bagpipex format bagdoc.tex : user's guide. quickref.tex : a reference 'card'. Green.tex } GreenTwo.tex } : sample tunes Bonnets.tex } : (note that in bagpipe music, two sharps are Washer.tex } : understood and the key signature is usually omitted as BlackDonald.tex } : in these samples) Notes: *.tex, *.ini, and *.mf are ascii. You may have to modify some settings to get your browser to download these files. The sample tunes and quickref in this distribution are set up to use MusixTeX.
