xml2pmx, version 2021-02-07. Summary: xml2pmx translates MusicXML into PMX notation. MusicXML (http://www.musicxml.com) originally developed by Recordare and now owned by Finale (https://www.finalemusic.com/), is the leading music-data exchange format. PMX, developed by Don Simons dsimons(at)roadrunner(dot)com, is an easy to use, yet powerful preprocessor for the music typesetting system MusiXTeX. http://icking-music-archive.org/software/htdocs/ xml2pmx has been developed by Dieter Gloetzel with the "Oberon Plugin for Windows Version 2.5" of ETHZ Zurich on Windows 10 https://github.com/Spirit-of-Oberon/ETH-Oberon-PlugIn-Win32 and OLR (Oberon Linux Revival) http://oberon.wikidot.com/oberon-linux-revival-olr Coverage of MusicXML by xml2pmx ******************************* The following MusicXML features are detected and translated to PMX: - up to 24 staves/voices and 600 bars - up to 83 notes per instrument and bar - two voices per staff - maximum of two staves per instrument - notes and rests up to 64th, including tuplets and grace notes, - maximum of 2 dots - chords, accidentals - some annotations like Fermata, Staccato, Tremolo etc. - ties, slurs and beams - definition of meter, fifths, clefs and their changes on the fly - dynamic marks: hairpins, "ff" etc., piano damping pedal - title and composer, and texts above or below the staff - barlines, repeats, volta - instrument names Windows and Unix line terminations are accepted. UTF-16 input is not accepted. This package is based on a runtime system developed by Mike Spivey (mike(at)cs.ox.ac.uk) as part of the Oxford Oberon Compiler project. Usage ***** On Windows or Macs, use the executables provided in the relevant folders. To build and install an executable xml2pmx on a system with conventional development tools: tar xvf xml2pmx-2021-02-07.tar.gz cd xml2pmx-2021-02-07 ./configure make sudo make install Full details on usage are in the man page. The most convenient way to use xml2pmx is with the musixtex.lua script, version 0.23 or later, which supports xml2pmx as a pre-preprocessor. Version 0.23 of musixtex.lua is provided in the scripts folder. On Windows you may have to use it as follows: texlua musixtex.lua something[.xml] If it is necessary to edit the resulting pmx file, use the -m option.
