		Command line options
		====================

The list of the command line options may be known running:
	'abcm2ps -h'

When an option starts with '+', this one is disabled.

List of the options
-------------------

  -
	Read the abc file from stdin.

  --<format> <value>
	Set the format parameter to <value>. See format.txt.

  -a<float>
	See: format.txt - maxshrink <float>

  -B<int>, +B
	See: format.txt - barsperstaff <int>

  -b<int>
	See: format.txt - measurefirst <int>

  -c, +c
	See: format.txt - continueall <bool>

  -D<dir>
	Search the format files in the directory <dir>.

  -d<unit>
	See: format.txt - staffsep <unit>

  -E, +E
	Produce EPS output instead of simple PS.
	In this mode, each tune goes to a different file which
	name is '<name>nnn.eps' or <title>.eps (see option '-O'
	- 'nnn' is a sequence number incremented at each tune).
	EPS files are normally embedded into Postscript documents,
	but they may be a way to generate graphical images. For
	example, using GhostScript:
		abcm2ps voices -E -e7
		gs -sDEVICE=pngmono -r80 -g590x174 \
			-dBATCH -dNOPAUSE \
			-sOutputFile=quitolis.png Out001.eps
	(the values for -g are the values of the bounding box in
	 the .eps, multiplied by (80 / 72), where 80 is the value
	 for -r, and 72 is the default resolution)

  -e<list>
	Select the tunes inside an ABC file.
	<list> is a comma separated list of items (tune numbers).
	Each selector applies to the previous associated ABC file.
	An item may be a single index value (as indicated in the 'X:'
	field), or a range of such values. A range is indicated as
	<first_index>-<last_index>. The last index may be omitted
	meaning 'end of file'.
	Example:
		abcm2ps voices -e 5,2-4 newfeatures -e5-
	Note: Filtering may raise problems, mainly on global definitions.

  -F<file>, +F
	Read the format file <file>.fmt. In the form '+F', the default
	format file ('default.fmt') is not read.

  -f
	See: format.txt - flatbeams <bool>

  -G, +G
	See: format.txt - graceslurs <bool>

  -H
	Display the current format values.

  -h
	Quick help, equivalent to "abcm2ps" without any arguments.
	This also shows the default settings for some parameters.

  -I<unit>
	See: format.txt - indent <unit>

  -j<int>[b], +j
	See: format.txt - measurenb <int>

  -k<int>[b], +k
	See: format.txt - measurenb <int>

  -L<int>
	See: format.txt - encoding <int>

  -l, +l
	See: format.txt - landscape <bool>

  -M, +M
	See: format.txt - musiconly <bool>

  -m<unit>
	See: format.txt - leftmargin <unit>

  -N<int>, +N
	Number the pages.
	<int> indicates the mode:
		0  no page numbers
		1  at top left
		2  at top right
		3  at top left on even pages, top right on odd pages
		4  at top right on even pages, top left on odd pages
	For compatibility with previous versions, '+N' is the same as
	'-N0', and '-N' is the same as '-N2'.
	If a header is defined ('%%header'), this option is ignored.

  -n, +n
	See: format.txt - writehistory <bool>

  -O[<directory>][<name>], +O
	Define the output file name.
	By default, the output file goes to the current directory.
	By default, the output file name is 'Out.ps' for PS, and
	'Outnnn.eps' for EPS (see option '-E').
	With this option, it will be <name> or <name>nnn.eps.
	If <name> is '=', the output file is the name of the ABC
	source file with the extension '.ps' for PS, or the title
	of the tune for EPS.
	If <name> is '-', the result is output on stdout (PS only).
	'+O' is the same as '-O'.

  -s<float>
	See: format.txt - scale <float>

  -u
	Select the abc2ps implicit decorations.

  -V
	Show the version number.

  -w<unit>
	See: format.txt - staffwidth <unit>

  -W<voice><keypitch>, +W
	Display a tin whistle tablature for the voice number <voice>.
	This number (range '1' to '9' only) is the number internally
	incremented as new voices are encountered; it is not the voice
	name. Up to 4 tablatures may be defined.
	Ex: '-W1c -W2Bb,'.

  -x, +x
	See: format.txt - withxrefs <bool>

  -0, +0
	See: format.txt - splittune <bool>

  -1, +1
	See: format.txt - oneperpage <bool>
