Jon Freeman Posted December 8, 2007 Share Posted December 8, 2007 It is also important to note that a high proportion of tunes available on the Web in ABC are incorrectly notated. Or they load up OK in one ABC translator program but not another. Yes, it is frustrating from my side of trying to provide abc and an abc converter too... I believe, historically abc2win was the worst offender and many will recommend avoiding this program. That said, I believe a lot of abc found on the Internet was produced with it and the newer attempts at standards try to allow other programs to work with its non standard quirks. Other problems came in with extensions and the abcplus project and abcmp2s. As far as I understand it there was no w: for aligned lyrics before and while there are later drafts, there still isn't an agreed standard for these items. My best guess is to consider abcm2ps which is actively developed as the guideline to our abc being to standard - ie. if that output is correct, we are likely to be to standard.
