I need some people who:
1) Have MusixTeX correctly working on some machine, preferably other than
2) Have some understanding up the underworkings of TeX.
http://www.cs.csubak.edu/~dgriffi/proj/code/tex-musixtex.tar.gz and give
it a spin. The sheet music produced tends to look much less than stellar
and most of the example .tex files found in
won't compile without manual help (like typing "/bye"). Take a look and
tell me what you think, what could be done better, and so on. I suspect
some of the nastiness can be blamed on not using the Postscript type1
fonts. I'll add that as a dependent package, but I thought I ought to
give what I have now some exposure.
Note: don't try to compile stones.tex (the Ultima theme). I talked to the
guy who made that file and he doesn't seem to remember how he compiled it
in the first place. I plan to investigate this later.
