describes abctab2ps version 1.8.11

April 2011


This document describes the features of the abc language for describing musical information. The language was originally invented by Chris Walshaw. In the meantime, it has been extended by the interaction between many people. Ideally, the abc language would be completely standardized. Actually there are differences between implementations in different programs. The description here is specifically for abctab2ps. In contrast to the abc standard, abctab2ps offers additional support for lute and guitar tablature.
