       a2crd - attempts the conversion of lyrics file into chordii input


       a2crd [OPTIONS] [FILE...]


       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 subtitles.


       -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 FILE Sends output to FILE.
