Comments and Spacing
White space, i.e, any combination of blank-, newline-, or tab-characters, can be inserted everywhere except within note or tag-names. The use of white space is discouraged in the following situations:
- within note specifications
- between tag-names and tag-argument-lists
White space is required in the following instances: - between notes - between tags - between notes and tags and vice versa
Comments can be inserted everywhere where white space is allowed.
A comment started with
% extends to the end of the line.
Thus, lines beginning with '%' are comment-lines.
(* comment *) can be used for specifying comments.
This form of comments can include multiple lines and may be nested.
% a comment line a0/4 h \slur(c1/8 h0) % a/4 <-- the last note is commented out [ c1/4 (* comment starts here ... d e f <-- part of the comment! ... ends here *) d ] % the sequence has only two notes!
