Directory support/m-tx

This is M-Tx (Music-from-TeXt), version 0.63d (2022-08-22).

M-Tx is a preprocessor for PMX 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.

The author of M-Tx is Dirk Laurie (deceased).

To install (on TDS-compliant TeX systems):

 +  unzip tex-archive/install/m-tx.tds.zip at the root of
    a texmf tree and, if necessary, update the filename
    database; e.g., texhash texmf. Documentation for M-Tx
    is installed under doc/generic/tmx. You must use an
    unzipping program that converts text files to the
    text-file format of your platform, such as "unzip -a ..." 
    on Linux.

 +  *either* copy the executables appropriate for your
    platform (Windows32, Windows64, OSX) to a
    folder on the executable PATH and ensure it has execute

 +  *or* on any Unix-like system with gcc and standard
    development tools installed: unpack mtx-0.63a.tar.gz
    (anywhere), move to the resulting mtx-0.63a directory,
    and do

       ./configure [--prefix=$HOME]
       make (or make -f Makefile.orig if you have fpc installed)
       make install (as root, if necessary)

M-Tx – A preprocessor for pmx

M-Tx is a preprocessor to pmx, which is itself a preprocessor to musixtex, a music typesetting system. The prime motivation to the development of M-Tx was to provide lyrics for music to be typeset. In fact, pmx now provides a lyrics interface, but M-Tx continues in use by those who prefer its language.
