JC's ABC Source Repository

This directory contains the source to a few ABC applications that I use. Everything here is Open Source, and you are free to take a copy under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

The jcabc2ps program is my own clone of the abc2ps program, used by my ABC Tune Finder. It has a few extensions that I've found useful. If you'd like to try it, you can grab the jcabc2ps-src.tar.gz source kit, or look in the jcabc2ps subdirectory, where I build everything. Note that the source tar.gz file contains the jcabc2ps/ directory name, so you could unpack and build it on a unix-like system by:

  1. zcat jcabc2ps-src.tar.gz | tar xf -
  2. cd jcabc2ps
  3. make
  4. make test
The "make" command will produce an executable named both jcabc2ps and abc2ps. The "make test" command will run it on all the test files in jcabc2ps/abc/, and the output postscript files will end up in jcabc2ps/ps/.
