Thread Name: Test of ABC Format
Subject: RE: Test of ABC Format
Two things:

1) the sample above needs a line "X:1" added before other lines in order to be complete.

2) I downloaded two more pieces of software from the ABC homepage site. Each took only a few seconds to download. One is called playqabc, which plays abc files through the PC speaker. It runs under DOS. I tested it and it works, but since it only takes a file name, the ABC would have to be saved to a file. This can be done by copying from the forum, pasting to a Notepad document, and saving as ASCII. The other program (actually a pair of programs) converts between MIDI and ABC. I'm going to take them home and try them out, and I'll let you all know how they work tomorrow (I hope). If they work I'll post the two tunes in the TUNES thread I started yesterday, in ABC in that thread.
