NAME

       musixtex  -  processes  MusiXTeX  files,  using pre-processors prepmx, pmxab and autosp as
       necessary, and then deletes intermediate and log files (unless -i is used)

SYNOPSIS

       [ texlua ] musixtex[.lua] { option | jobname [ .mtx  | .pmx  | .aspc | .tex | .ltx ] } ...

DESCRIPTION

       If a jobname argument has a .tex extension, the default effect  is  to  process  the  file
       using

       etex(1)     (first pass)

       musixflx(1) (second pass)

       etex(1)     (third pass)

       dvips(1)    (dvi to Postscript)

       ps2pdf(1)   (Postscript to Portable Document Format)

       normally  followed  by  removal  of  intermediate  and  log  files.  A log musixtex.log is
       generated, even if other log files are removed.

       If a jobname argument has a .pmx extension, the file is first preprocessed using  pmxab(1)
       and the resulting .tex file is processed as above.

       If a jobname argument has a .mtx extension, the file is first preprocessed using prepmx(1)
       and the resulting .pmx file is processed as above.

       If a jobname argument has a .ltx extension, the  file  is  processed  using  latex(1)  (or
       pdflatex(1)) in place of etex.

       If  a  jobname  argument  has  a  .aspc  extension,  the  file is first preprocessed using
       autosp(1) and the resulting .tex or .ltx file is processed as above.

       If a jobname argument has none of these extensions,  the  script  will  look  for  a  file
       jobname.mtx  or  jobname.pmx or jobname.aspc or jobname.tex or jobname.ltx, in that order,
       and process it as above.

OPTIONS

       -v        output program name and version number, and quit

       -h        output usage summary and quit

       -l        assume LaTeX source; implied if the file has .ltx extension

       -p        change the TeX processor to pdfetex(1) or pdflatex(1) (and  doesn't  run  a  dvi
                 processor)

       -c        preprocess pmx file using pmxchords(1)

       -d        don't generate a .ps file and change the dvi processor to dvipdfm(1)

       -D dvix   use  dvix  as the dvi processor; e.g., -D "dvipdfm -m 0.9".  Use -d before -D to
                 suppress .ps generation.

       -P ps2pdf use ps2pdf as the Postscript processor; e.g., -P "ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE=a4"

       -F fmt    use fmt as the TeX processor; e.g., -F "luatex --output-format=dvi"

       -m        stop processing at the pmx file

       -M mtxx   use mtxx as the mtx preprocessor; e.g., -M "prepmx -i".

       -A aspcx  use aspcx as the aspc preprocessor; e.g., -A "autosp -l".

       -t        stop processing at the tex/mid files

       -s        stop processing at the dvi file

       -g        stop processing at the ps file

       -i        retain intermediate and log files

       -1        one-pass [pdf][la]tex processing; i.e., without calling musixflx

       -x        call makeindex(1) to update index database

       -f        restore default processing

       -q        quiet mode (only musixtex's own messages); other  messages  are  diverted  to  a
                 temporary  file.   If  an  error  occurs  at  the  TeX  stage,  processing halts
                 immediately and the tail of the log file is sent to stderr.  Version information
                 is copied from the temporary file to the log file.

       Options  affect  processing  of  all  succeeding  MusiXTeX files unless changed by another
       option.  Option flags cannot be combined; e.g., use  -l -x  rather than  -lx.

       Note that four TeX engines are available via the -l and -p options:

           etex      default
           latex     -l
           pdfetex   -p
           pdflatex  -l -p

       If the -F option is used, options -l and -p need to be set if the  engine  name  does  not
       contain  "latex"  and  "pdf"  respectively.  For  example,  the  above four engines can be
       replaced by:
         -F "luatex --output-format=dvi"
         -F "lualatex --output-format=dvi"
         -F "luatex" -p
         -F "lualatex" -p
