This is M-Tx (Music-from-TeXt), version 0.60d (2013-12-24).
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 (email@example.com).
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 (Windows, OSX) to a folder on the executable PATH
and ensure it has execute permission
+ *or* on any Unix-like system with gcc and standard development tools
installed: unpack mtx-0.60d.tar.gz (anywhere), move to the resulting
mtx-0.60d directory, and do
make (or make -f Makefile.orig if you have fpc installed)
make install (as root, if necessary)
Then install a symbolic link m-tx in any directory on the executable
PATH to scripts/m-tx/m-tx.lua
Documentation for M-Tx and the wrapper script is installed under
