pmxchords - Man Page

This script processes pmx files with chord symbols, allowing for key transpositions


[ texlua ] pmxchords { option | jobname [ .pmx ]  } ...

The default effect is to preprocess each pmx file so that chords are transposed as necessary, generating a temporary pmx file which is then processed by pmxab.  Finally the resulting tex file is renamed to have the original jobname.  The default filename for the temporary file is <jobname>_chtr.pmx.
