Philips Music Writer is a program for typesetting music. It reads text files as input, and generates PostScript as output. Philips Music Writer can also write simple MIDI files for proofhearing purposes. PMW is written in C and is freestanding; that is, it does not require additional processing software. It is a Linux/Unix port of a program that has run for over a decade on Acorn systems, where it was known as Philips Music Scribe. PMW operates by reading an input file containing an encoded description of the music; such a file can be constructed using any text editor or word processor. The music encoding is very straightforward and compact, and quick to enter. Although such an input method may not be considered as "user-friendly" as pointing and dragging on the screen, it is a much faster way of inputting music, once the format of the input files has been learned. In addition, the usual facilities of a word processor, such as cutting and pasting, can be used to speed up entry, and PMW is able to provide text-based features such as macros and included files. The output of PMW is a PostScript file that can be printed on a PostScript printer, or viewed on screen or printed on a non-PostScript printer by the use of GhostScript. PMW comes with a PostScript outline font that contains all the musical shapes (notes, rests, accidentals, bar lines, clefs, etc.) that it requires. There is a man page for the command line options, and a 200-page manual that is distributed as a PDF file. The PMW input encoding is designed to be easy for a musician to remember. It makes use of as many familiar musical notations as possible within the limitations of the computers character set. Normally it will be input by a human using any available word processor or text editor. There is no reason, however, why PMW input should not form the output of some other computer program that captures (or generates) music in another fashion. PMW has many features which enable it to print a wide variety of music using standard notation. A number of these are listed below. The extensive manual describes the input notation in detail..
