What is bagpipe.tex and how is it used?
Moderator: (inherited from parent)
bagpipe.tex ( is a freely available set of TeX macros developed by Walter Innes for use with MusicTeX. It takes advantage of the peculiarities and simplicities of music for the highland bagpipes to make entry considerably simpler than using native MusicTeX. There are macros for all common and many not so common grace note sequences, the pitches are given their common names, and there are extensive macros for beamed note groups. TeX, MusicTeX, and bagpipe.tex can be run on almost any hardware platform, including PC's. There are no programs which play tunes in bagpipe.tex format. The program bmw2tex ( will convert BMW notation to bagpipe.tex format.
