BagpipeTex is a set of MusixTeX macros to typeset bagpipe music.

Bagpipe music is written slightly differently than regular music and
sequences of gracenotes are often viewed as tokens rather than sequences
of individual notes.  These differences make it very difficult to
typeset bagpipe music with plain old MusixTeX.  Therefore BagpipeTeX has
been written by Walt Innes (  This is a macro
package for use on top of MusixTex, which is itself a macro package for
use with LaTeX.


Please see for the new package and please add it to the NetBSD pkgsrc tree.  This package depends on print/tex-musixtex.
