NAME

       a2crd - attempts the conversion of lyrics file into chordii input

SYNOPSIS

       a2crd [ options...] [ filename... ]

DESCRIPTION

       a2crd reads the lyrics of one songs from a file, and attempts to produce a output suitable
       for chordii.  Chord names can appear above or below the lyrics.  a2crd  will  embed  those
       names into the lyrics.

       The  FAQ list of alt.guitar documents the way a ascii file should look, but this format is
       not recognized by everyone, or fully enforced. Thus, it is impossible  to  modify  chordii
       itself to read *any* type of ascii input and produce good result.  a2crd tries its best to
       to do the tedious conversion job.

       a2crd attempts to recognize mail/news headers, and comments them out.  It preserves as  is
       any  line  starting with a '{', which would indicates a chordii command. It also preserves
       any lines starting with a '#'.

       a2crd prepends to the output the content of a file called $HOME/.a2crdsig, if it exists.

       The first line that is not a comment is assumed to be the title  of  the  song.  The  nest
       lines until a blank one are assumed to be sub-titles.

OPTIONS

       -r ratio
               Sets the threshold for chordii line recognition. a2crd looks at every line. If the
               ratio ( space_characters / (non-space_characters) is greater than ratio, the  line
               will  be recognized as a chordii line, and its content will be merge with the next
               available text line. The ratio has a initial value  of  1.  It  is  defined  as  a
               floating precision value.

       -D      Prints debugging information. For programmers only.

       -o filename
               Sends output to filename
