abc2mtex is a package designed to notate tunes stored in an ascii format (henceforth abc notation). It was designed primarily for folk and traditional tunes of Western European origin (such as Irish, English and Scottish) which can be written on one stave in standard classical notation. However, it can be used for multiple staves and should be extendible to many other types of music. The program can be used as a fast preprocessor for MusicTeX or MusiXTeX.
