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 (

To install (on TDS-compliant TeX systems):

 +  unzip tex-archive/install/ 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

       ./configure [--prefix=$HOME]
       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
