Lilypond 2.18.0 released! December 29, 2013

We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.18.0. LilyPond is a music engraving program devoted to producing the highest-quality sheet music possible. It brings the aesthetics of traditionally engraved music to computer printouts.

Among the numerous improvements and changes, the following might be most visible:

  • Many items are now positioned using their actual outline rather than a rectangular bounding box. This greatly reduces the occurrence of unsightly large gaps.
  • Sets and overrides can now use the syntax
    \override Voice.TextSpanner.bound-details.left.text = "rit."
    

    instead of the previous

    \override Voice.TextSpanner #'(bound-details left text) = "rit."
    
  • Triplets with a given group length can now be written as
    \tuplet 3/2 4 { c8 c c  c c c }
    

    instead of

    \times 2/3 { c8 c c }  \times 2/3 { c8 c c }
    

A full list of noteworthy new features is given in:

Einleitung

Unser Ziel

flat-design

LilyPond entstand, als zwei Musiker über das tote und unbeseelte Aussehen von computererstellten Notendrucken hinausgehen wollten. Alle Musiker wollen schöne Noten lesen, warum also sollten Programmierer kein Programm schreiben können, das schönere Orchesterstimmen setzen kann?

Das Resultat ist ein System, welches Musiker von den Details des Notensatzlayouts befreit, sodass sie sich darauf konzentrieren können, Musik zu machen. LilyPond arbeitet mit ihnen zusammen, um Notensatz professioneller Qualität zu erstellen, welche nach dem ganzen Erfahrungsschatz und den Traditionen des klassischen Notensatzes gesetzt werden.


Eigenschaften

Eleganz

Hervorragender klassischer Notensatz

flat-design

Durch die Benutzung von LilyPond erhalten Sie eleganten Notensatz, der leicht zu lesen ist. Die Entwicklergemeinschaft des Programmes hat tausende von Stunden damit verbracht, ein sehr mächtiges Notensatzprogramm zu entwickeln, dass automatisch schönen Notensatz ausgibt. Alle stilistischen Einstellungen, Schriftartendesign und Algorithmen von LilyPond wurden von den besten handgestochenen Notenbeispielen inspiriert. Die Ausgabe von LilyPond hat das gleiche kraftvolle, ausbalancierte und elegante Aussehen wie die besten gestochenen klassischen Partituren. Dazu mehr in unserem Aufsatz.

Effektive Layout-Einstellungen

Verbringen Sie weniger Zeit damit, den Notensatz nachträglich zu verändern: LilyPond formatiert die Noten von Anfang an richtig. Die Platzaufteilung und die richtigen Zeilen- und Seitenumbrüche werden von selber errechnet, um ein dichtes und gleichmäßiges Notenbild zu erzeugen. Zusammenstöße zwischen Gesangstext, Noten und Akkorden werden aufgelöst und alle Bögen sind automatisch richtig gekrümmt!

Einfach in der Benutzung

lilypond-book

Text-basierte Eingabe

LilyPond nimmt ASCII-Texteingabe, welche Sie mit Ihrem Lieblingstexteditor erstellen können, schnell und bequem. Die Eingabe enthält alle Information, sodass man keine komplexen Befehlssequenzen erinnern muss. Speichern Sie die Eingabe einfach in einer Textdatei für spätere Verwendung.

Kombinieren Sie Noten und Text

Sie können Notenfragmente in einen Text einfügen, ohne Bilder auszuschneiden und einzufügen. Mit LilyPond lassen sich Noten in LaTeX oder HTML nahtlos einfügen und mit OOoLilyPond auch in OpenOffice.org-Dokumente integrieren. Es gibt auch Plugins, mit denen LilyPond-Code für verschiedene Blogs und Wikis ermöglicht wird, sodass auch eine Zusammenarbeit online möglich wird.

Barrierefreiheit

Text-basierte Eingabe ermöglicht das Schreiben von Partituren auch für Leute mit schweren physischen Behinderungen. Benutzer mit motorischen Behinderungen, die Tastatur oder Maus nicht benutzen können, können mit einem Spracherkennungsprogramm LilyPond-Dateien bearbeiten. Sogar vollkommen blinde Benutzer können mit Screenreader LilyPond-Dateien erstellen – vollkommen unmöglich mit graphisch-basierten Notationsprogrammen.

Erweiterbares Design

Alle Einstellungen können verändert werden, um Ihrem persönlichen typographischen Geschmack zu entsprechen. Wenn Ihnen das immer noch nicht reicht, gibt es immer noch die eingebaute Scriptsprache „Scheme“, ein Dialekt des mächtigen LISP. Einstellungen, Variablen und Funktionen sind alle in einem ausführlichen Programmhandbuch dokumentiert.

Umgebung

frescobaldi-lilypond-editor-small

Freie Software

LilyPond kann ohne jede Bezahlung heruntergeladen werden! Wirklich, es ist vollkommen frei! Holen Sie es sich von der Download-Seite.

Es handelt sich um Freie Software, welche zusammen mit dem Quellcode zur Verfügung gestellt wird – mit der Erlaubnis, zu verändern und zu kopieren. Stören Sie sich an einem Fehler oder brauchen Sie dringend eine neue Funktion? Schreiben Sie sie einfach selber, oder bezahlen Sie jemanden, der es für Sie tut.

Hervorragende Unterstützung

LilyPond gibt es für alle verbreiteten Betriebssysteme: GNU/Linux, MacOS X und Windows. LilyPond hat eine ausführliche Dokumentation und hunderte von Beispieldateien. Es gibt eine aktive Benutzergemeinschaft, die Fragen auf der LilyPond-Mailliste und in einem deutschsprachigen Forum beantwortet, während das Entwicklungsteam es ermöglicht, dass Probleme schnell gelöst werden.

Erweiterte Editoren

Einige Entwickler, die selber aktive LilyPond-Benutzer sind, haben auch spezielle Werkzeuge geschrieben, die dabei helfen sollen, LilyPond-Dateien schneller und effektiver zu erstellen und zu editieren. Für einige Beispiele siehe Leichteres Editieren.

Was jetzt?

Sind Sie noch nicht überzeugt? Dann schauen Sie sich einige konkrete Beispiele an. Wenn Sie sich schon entschlossen haben, LilyPond auszuprobieren, lesen Sie zuerst über unsere Text-Eingabe.


Beispiele

LilyPond ist ist ein sehr mächtiges und flexibles Werkzeug, dass Notensatz der unterschiedlichsten Art handhaben kann. Sehen Sie sich unsere Beispiele an und lassen Sie sich inspirieren!

Klassische Musik

Dieses Orgelpräludium von J. S. Bach ist ein recht typisches Notensatzprojekt mit LilyPond.

bach-bwv610

Komplexe Notation

Dieses Beispiel aus Goyescas von Enrique Granados zeigt einige der fortgeschrittenen Notensatzfunktionen, unter Anderem Balken zwischen Notenzeilen, Hälse über die Notenzeilen hinweg und Stimmfolgestriche.

Alte Musik

LilyPond hat Unterstützung für verschiedene Notationsarten der Alten Musik, wie etwa dieser Abschnitt eines Gregorianischen Chorals.

Moderne Musik

Zeitgenössische Komponisten werden feststellen, dass LilyPond sich sehr gut dazu eignet, außergewöhnliche Notation darzustellen. Hier ein Ausschnitt aus Čáry von Trevor Bača für Bassflöte Solo.

Effiziente, flexible Erstellung von Aufführungsmaterial

Verschiedenes Aufführungsmaterial kann aus dem selben Quellcode erstellt werden. Hier ein Ausschnitt aus Händels Giulio Cesare, gesetzt von Nicolas Sceaux, als Partitur, Klavierauszug und eine Geigenstimme.

Tabulatur

LilyPond unterstützt Tabulatur-Notation, die an ein beliebiges Instrument angepasst werden kann, dass Tabulatur-Notation einsetzt. Das Tabulatur-System wird automatisch anhand der Noten erstellt, die man für das fünflinige Notensystem notiert hat.

Schenker-Graphen

Das Standardnotenbild kann sehr stark verändert werden. Hier eine eindrucksvolle Schenker-Analyse, von Kris Schaffer mit LilyPond erstellt für einen Artikel im Linux Journal. Die Farben wurden zur Verdeutlichung hinzugefügt.

bach-schenker

(Klick zum Vergrößern)

Vokalmusik

LilyPond eignet sich hervorragend, um Vokalmusik aller Arten zu notieren, von Hymnen bis zu einer Oper. Hier eine mittelalterliche Motette mit geringfügig speziellen Anforderungen. Die Tenorstimme ist in einer anderen Taktart als die anderen Stimmen geschrieben, wird aber an den anderen Stimmen ausgerichtet, als ob sie die gleiche Taktart hätte. LilyPond kann damit sehr elegant umgehen. Beachten Sie auch die Incipite mit Schlüsseln im Vaticana-Stil, durchgestrichene Notenhälse für plicierte Noten und Ligaturklammern über bestimmten Notengruppen.

Anwendung für die Musikerziehung

LilyPond eignet sich perfekt für eine Anwendung in der Musikerziehung. Hier ein Beispiel einer einfachen Kontrapunktaufgabe.

Popmusik

Es ist einfach, ein Liedblatt mit Melodie, Text und Akkorden sowie Griffsymbolen zu erstellen. In diesem Beispiel sind einige der vordefinierten Griffdiagramme eingesetzt, aber sie können vollständig angepasst werden, um fast jeder Situation gerecht zu werden.

Große Projekte

LilyPond eignet sich großartig für große Projekte wie Opern oder Werke für großes Symphonieorchester. Zusätzlich ermöglicht die texbasierte Eingabe größere Barrierefreiheit – das folgende Beispiel wurde von Hu Haipeng, einem blinden Komponisten, zur Verfügung gestellt.

Was jetzt?

Noch immer nicht überzeugt? LilyPond ist Open Source und garantiert Ihnen Freiheit. Wenn Sie sich schon entschlossen haben, LilyPond auszuprobieren, lesen zuerst über unsere Text-Eingabe.


Freiheit

Freie Software

GNU LilyPond wird von einer Gemeinschaft von Enthusiasten geschrieben und unterhalten. Es wird unter der GNU General Public License und der GNU Free Documentation License herausgegeben, sodass jeder die Freiheit hat, Fehler zu verbessern, das Programm zu ändern oder zu erweitern. Es sollte nicht hunderte Euro kosten, ein Programm zum erstellen schönen Notensatzes zu erwerben.

Was für Nutzen haben die Benutzer?

  • Keine Kosten: Laden Sie das Programm und probieren Sie es. Was haben Sie zu verlieren?
  • Teilen: wenn Sie das Programm gut finden, können Sie Ihren Freunden, Lehrern, Studenten oder Kollegen eine Kopie weitergeben!
  • Quellcode vorhanden: wenn es Sie interessiert, wie LilyPond eine bestimmte Notation erstellt, können Sie genau verfolgen, wie das Programm vor sich geht.
  • Erweiterbar: Sie können Eigenschaften hinzufügen, Fehler verbessern und die Funktionalität ändern. Wenn Sie kein Programmierer sind, können Sie jemanden anstellen, der diese Aufgabe für Sie übernimmt.

    Das wird sich vielleicht für den gelegentlichen Musiker nicht nach einem Vorteil anhören, aber die Möglichkeit, ein Programm zu erweitern kann sich als sehr wertvoll für ernsthafte Komponisten, Notenverlage und Wissenschaftler erweisen.

  • Sicherheit für die Zukunft: Wenn eine Firma bankrott geht, was geschieht dann mit den elektronischen Noten, die von ihren Programmen abhängen? Diese Sorge brauchen Sie nicht mit LilyPond haben: auch wenn das gesamte Entwicklerteam auf einmal aufhören würde (was sehr unwahrscheinlich ist), gibt es das Programm doch immer noch legal im Internet, um es weiterzubenutzen, zu verändern oder zu kopieren.

Warum „geben“ die Entwickler von LilyPond ihre Arbeit umsonst her?

Die meisten sehen die Entwicklungsarbeit an LilyPond als ein Hobby oder freiwillige Arbeit. Man müsste also eigentlich fragen: „Warum machen Leute etwas freiwillig“?

  • Spaß: auf ein Ziel hinzuarbeiten kann sehr begeistern, besonders wenn man im Team arbeiten kann.
  • Die gleichen Ziele: wir alle wollen schön gesetzte Noten, aber nur wenige Leute haben Fähigkeiten (und niemand die Zeit), um ein Programm zu schreiben, dass alle Situationen meistern kann. Aber indem wir zusammen arbeiten – einer verbessert die Form der Bögen, ein anderer verbessert den Code für die automatischen Balken und ein dritter schreibt die Dokumentation, wie diese Eigenschaften genutzt werden können – können wir unser Ziel erreichen, sodass jeder nur einen Bruchteil der Zeit aufbringt, die ein einzelner bräuchte.
  • „Geschenkkultur“: Die Free Software (oder „Open Source“) Bewegung hat viele großartige Programme hervorgebracht, wie etwa GNU/Linux, Mozilla Firefox und Battle for Wesnoth. Als Dank für den Nutzen, den sie von solchen Projekten erhalten haben, wollen manche Entwickler der Gemeinschaft „etwas zurück geben“.
  • Arbeitserfahrung: zu einem freien Softwareprojekt beizutragen ist eine gute Weise, sich im Programmieren, Schreiben und Übersetzen von Dokumentation oder Design zu üben. Diese Übung hat einigen Entwicklern geholfen, Arbeitsangebote oder Stipendien zu erhalten.

Empfehlungen von Benutzern

carter-brey

Carter Brey, Erstes Cello, New York Philharmonic

„… Ich habe einige Zugabestücke für Solo-Cello geschrieben und mit LilyPond gedruckt. Sie sollen bei Schirmer herausgegeben werden. Ich bin mir sicher, dass ihre eigene Version nicht halb so scharf gestochen ist wie meine!“

orm-finnendahl

Orm Finnendahl, Kompositionsprofessor, Musikhochschule Freiburg

„Auch wenn ich [LilyPond] noch nicht sehr gut kenne, bin ich schon außerordentlich beeindruckt. Ich habe das Programm benutzt, um eine Motette von Josquin Desprez in Mensuralnotation zu notieren. Es steht außer Frage, dass LilyPond in der Geschwindigkeit, Einfachheit in der Benutzung und Notensatz alle anderen Notationsprogramme leicht überholt.“

darius-blasband

Darius Blasband, Komponist (Brüssel, Belgien)

„[Nach der ersten Orchesterprobe] wurde die Qualität meiner Notenblätter immer wieder gelobt. Und das, obwohl ich keine der vielen Möglichkeiten in Anspruch genommen hatte, den Satz zu verbessern. Was ich dem Orchester ausgeteilt habe, war im Grunde die rohe, unveränderte LilyPond-Version.“

Kieren MacMillan, Komponist (Toronto, Kanada)

„Anerkennung und Dank an das Entwicklungsteam für ihre unglaubliche Arbeit. Ich habe noch nie etwas gesehen, das dem Satz nahekommt, den ich mit LilyPond erhalte. Ich bin vollkommen überzeugt, dass meine Publikationsanforderungen über alle Erwartungen erfüllt werden, da ich dieses Programm verwenden kann. [...] sozusagen unveränderter Notensatz von LilyPond [...] sieht besser aus als alle „professionellen“ Publikationen der letzten Zeit, mit denen ich ihn verglichen habe (so ungefähr alle Warner Bros.-Noten und sogar viele der „traditionellen Notenhäuser“). [...] “

„Das sollen erstmal Finale/Sibelius/Igor/usw. erreichen!!!!“

Chris Cannam, Chefprogrammierer des RoseGarden-Projekts

„LilyPond ist offensichtlich der Super-Gorilla [des Notensatzes].“

Chris Snyder, Adoro Music Publishing

„Die Art, in der die Noten mit LilyPond eingegeben werden, lässt mich musikalischer denken – es gab Zeiten, wenn ich vergeblich versucht habe, LilyPond zu erklären, wie etwas in Noten gesetzt werden soll, nur um festzustellen, dass, auch wenn ich es genauso hinkriegen würde, wie der Komponist es wollte, die Noten trotzdem sehr unklar zum Lesen sein würden. LilyPond macht es für mich sehr viel einfacherer, in meiner Doppelrolle als Editor und Notensetzer zu arbeiten.“

„Ich habe LilyPond ausschließlich für meine startende Notendruckfirma benutzt. So gut wie ohne Ausnahme waren alle Komponisten hingerissen von der Qualität des Notensatzes, wenn ich ihnen die Korrekturfahnen ihrer Musik gezeigt habe. Ich verdiene selber auch einen Teil dieses Lobes, denn ich habe viel Zeit damit verbracht, die Ausgabe zu verändern, insbesondere die Bindebögen von Akkorden – aber LilyPond gibt einen wunderbaren Punkt zum Beginnen, eine sehr intuitive Schnittstelle und die Möglichkeit, absolut alles zu verändern, wenn ich mir nur die Zeit nehme. Ich bin überzeugt, dass kein kommerzielles Produkt dem auch nur nahe kommen kann.“

David Bobroff, Bassposaunist, Iceland Symphonieorchester

„Ich finde LilyPond einfach toll [..] Je mehr ich darüber lerne, desto mehr mag ich es!“

Vaylor Trucks, E-Gitarrenspieler (Ja, verwandt mit)

„Ich bin total beeindruckt von LilyPond [..]“

„DAS IST DAS BESTE PROGRAMM ALLER ZEITEN!!!“

„Vielen, vielen Dank an euch alle für die harte Arbeit und die Hingabe!“

Nicolas Sceaux, Mutopia-Mitarbeiter

„Ich hatte so eine Hassliebe zu ihm entwickelt. Liebe, weil das erste Notenblatt, das ich gesehen hatte, so gut aussah. Die Beschreibung lügt, wenn es um die Schönheit von LilyPond geht – das ist viel zu bescheiden! [...] da LilyPond immer besser wird und ich mich mehr damit auseinander setze, wie Sachen in Scheme gemacht werden, habe ich viel weniger Frustrationen. Auf jeden Fall wollte ich sagen: Danke, dass ihr LilyPond anbietet, es ist wirklich toll!“

Werner Lemberg, Dirigent am Koblenzer Theater und herausragender GNU-Hacker

„Überhaupt macht LilyPond saubere Arbeit!“

Paul Davis, Entwickler von JACK und Ardour

„Ich finde, [LilyPond ist] ein außerordentliches Programm, und es erreicht wunderschöne Ergebnisse. Als ich im letzten Jahr ein Interview darüber gelesen habe, habe ich verschiedenen Freunden über sein Potential gepredigt.“

Dr. Mika Kuuskankare, Forscher an der Sibelius-Akademie Finnland, Komponist

und Autor des Expressive Notation Package (ENP)

„Ich habe eine große Achtung vor LilyPond und denen, die es geschrieben haben, denn ich weiß aus eigener Erfarhung, wie schwierig solch ein Programm sein kann.“

David Cameron, Musiker,

professioneller Notensetzer und lange Zeit Score-Benutzer

„Den allergrößten Dank an alle, die zu diesem Projekt beitragen. Ich habe SCORE für einen großen Musikverlag in den 90er Jahren sehr intensiv benutzt, aber jetzt sehe ich, dass LilyPond es mir endlich ermöglicht, genau das Aussehen des Notendrucks zu erreichen, das ich will, besonders wenn es sich nicht um "Standardlösungen" handelt.“

Lesen Sie über unsere Text-Eingabe.


Text-Eingabe

Musik „kompilieren“

nereid-shot-small

(Klick zum Vergrößern)

LilyPond ist ein kompiliertes System: es wird über eine Text-Datei gestartet, die die Noten beschreibt. Die resultierende Ausgabe wird am Bildschirm betrachtet oder ausgedruckt. In einer bestimmten Beziehung ist LilyPond eher eine Programmsprache als ein graphisches Notensatzprogramm.

Man schreibt die Noten nicht, indem man Notensymbole von einer graphischen Leiste zieht und auf einem sich dynamisch immer wieder erneuernden Notensystem platziert. Anstatt dessen schreibt man Text. Dieser Text wird von LilyPond interpretiert (oder „kompiliert“) und dabei schön aussehender Notensatz produziert.

Leute, die an das graphische Notensetzen gewöhnt sind, können eine Weile brauchen, um die neue Arbeitsweise zu lernen, aber das Resultat macht den Aufwand wett.

Achtung: Wir zeigen einen kurzen Überblick über unsere Texteingabe – es ist nicht so kompliziert, wie es sich anhört. Machen Sie sich keine Sorge, wenn Sie nicht jedes Detail der Beispiele verstehen. In unserer Dokumentation für Anfänger werden alle Einzelheiten sehr viel ausführlicher behandelt.

Es ist so einfach wie A B C

Noten werden durch Buchstaben und Zahlen kodiert. Besondere Kommandos werden mit einem Backslash eingegeben.

text-input-1-annotate-detext-input-1-output

Versetzungszeichen werden durch verschiedene Endungen hinzugefügt: -is nach der Note setzt ein Kreuz, -es dagegen ein b (– das sind die deutschen Endungen, Endungen in anderen Sprachen sind auch möglich). LilyPond entscheidet selber, wo es die Versetzungszeichen platziert.

text-input-2-annotate-detext-input-2-output

Popmusik

Akkorde und Liedtext können einfach zu einem Lead Sheet kombiniert werden.

text-input-pop-annotate-detext-input-pop-output

Orchesterstimmen

Die Eingabedatei enthält die Noten eines Stückes. Partitur und Stimmen können aus einer einzigen Eingabe-Datei erstellt werden. Wenn man eine Note verändert, findet sich die Veränderung also gleichzeitig in der Stimme und der Partitur wieder. Damit die Noten mehrfach verwendet werden, sollten sie einer Variablen zugewiesen werden:

text-input-parts-both-annotate-de

Mit dieser Variable kann dann eine Einzelstimme erstellt werden (hier transponiert, die Pausen sind zusammengezogen):

text-input-parts-single-annotate-detext-input-parts-single-output

Die gleiche Variable wird dann in der Partitur benutzt (hier in der Originaltonhöhe):

text-input-score-annotate-detext-input-score-output

Dokumentation für Anfänger

Es ist uns klar, dass diese Art, Noten zu schreiben, vielen Benutzern seltsam vorkommt. Aus diesem Grund haben wir eine ausführliche Anleitung verfasst, die neuen Benutzern helfen soll. Man sollte mit der Einführung beginnen. Das Handbuch zum Lernen funktioniert als Einführung und Beginn für das Arbeiten mit LilyPond; hier werden viele Fragen beantwortet, bevor man sie überhaupt stellen konnte!

Lesen Sie bitte das Handbuch zum Lernen bevor Sie sich über Fehler beschweren! Neue Benutzer denken manchmal, dass LilyPond nicht richtig funktioniert, während das Programm in Wirklichkeit genau das tut, wozu es geschrieben worden ist.

Weitere Information findet sich unter Handbücher

LilyPond kümmert sich vor allem darum, Noten in bester Qualität zu setzen – das Programmieren einer graphischen Benutzeroberfläche (GUI) würde uns nur von dieser Aufgabe ablenken. Es gibt dennoch andere Projekte, deren Ziel es ist, LilyPond-Dateien zu erstellen.

Einige Editionsumgebungen beinhalten Syntaxhervorhebung, automatische Vervollständigung und vorgefertigte Vorlagen. Andere Programme stellen tatsächliche eine GUI zur Verfügung, mit der man graphisch eine Partitur editieren kann. Mehr Information finden Sie unter Leichteres Editieren.

http://denemo.org

Denemo ist ein graphischer Editor, welcher LilyPond-Dateien produzieren kann und auch Audioplayback erlaubt. Hiermit kann die LilyPond-Datei parallel zum graphischen Notenbild betrachtet werden. Zusätzliche Veränderungen und Anpassungen können an die Objekte angehängt werden – sie werden mit der Denemo-Datei gespeichert, sodass der Benutzer graphisch weiterarbeiten kann.

Wenn man den Cursor im LilyPond-Text bewegt, wird er auch im Notenbild verschoben, und Syntaxfeher in LilyPond-Anpassungen werden in Textansicht markiert, wenn man von dort aus druckt.

Texteditoren

http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/

Emacs ist ein Texteditor mit sprachensensitiven Eigenschaften für sehr viele Computersprachen. Emacs ist ein sehr stark erweiterbarer Editor, welcher auch als Integrierte Entwicklungsumgebung benutzt werden kann. Es gibt einen „lilypond“-Modus, der die Sprachdefinitionen für das Arbeiten mit LilyPond-Dateien zur Verfügung stellt. Einer unserer Entwickler hat auch einen Hauptmodus für Emacs, lyqi geschrieben.

http://www.vim.org

Vim ist ein minimaler Texteditor und eine Erweiterung des älteren Unix-Editors vi. Er ist auch erweiterbar und konfigurierbar.

Allgemein gilt, dass Sie wahrscheinlich zu einem anderen Editor greifen werden, wenn Sie nicht schon von Anfang an mit Emacs oder Vim vertraut sind.

Weiter Information zum Einstellen von Emacs und Vim findet sich unter Unterstützung von Texteditoren.

Eine Datei kompilieren

Achtung: Diese Anweisungen gehen davon aus, dass Sie die LilyPond-Application benutzen. Wenn Sie eins der Programme benutzen, die in Leichteres Editieren beschrieben sind, schauen Sie bitte in der Dokumentation nach, wenn Sie Probleme damit haben, eine Datei zu kompilieren.

1. Schritt: Erstellen Sie eine ‘.ly’-Datei

Wenn Sie das LilyPond.app-Symbol doppelt klicken, öffnet sich eine Beispiel-Datei.

pictures/Learning_Macos_welcome

Wählen Sie aus den Menüs oben links auf Ihrem Bildschirm File > Save.

pictures/Learning_Macos_Save_menu

Wählen Sie einen Namen für die Datei, etwa ‘test.ly’.

pictures/Learning_Macos_Compiling_log

3. Schritt: Ausgabe anschauen

Wenn die Kompilation fertig ist, wird ein PDF mit dem gleichen Namen wie das Original erstellt und automatisch mit dem Standard-PDF-Programm geöffnet und angezeigt.

pictures/Learning_Macos_pdf_output

Andere Befehle

Um neue LilyPond-Dateien zu erstellen beginnen sie mit File > New

pictures/Learning_Macos_New_menu

oder File > Open um eine schon existierende Datei zu öffnen und zu editieren.

pictures/Learning_Macos_Open_menu

Sie müssen alle Änderungen an der Datei zuerst speichern, bevor Sie wieder Compile > Tyepset wählen. Wenn das PDF nicht erscheint, schauen Sie im Fortschrittslog nach Fehlern.

Wenn Sie nicht das Standard-PDF-Programm benutzen, das automatisch bei Mac OS X dabei ist, und Sie die PDF-Datei noch von einer vorigen Kompilation geöffnet haben, können weitere Kompilationen fehlschlagen, bis Sie das Original-PDF schließen.

Benutzung auf der Kommandozeile

Achtung: Wenn Sie mit der GUI zufrieden sind, dann ignorieren Sie bitte diese Anweisungen.

MacOS X auf der Kommandozeile

Die einfachste Art, lilypond-Skripte auszuführen ist es, eigene „Hilfsskripte“ zu erstellen.

  1. Erstellen Sie einen Ordner, in dem diese Skripte gespeichert werden:
    mkdir -p ~/bin
    cd ~/bin
    
  2. Erstellen Sie eine Datei mit der Bezeichnung lilypond und dem Inhalt:
    #!/bin/bash
    exec DIR/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/lilypond "$@"
    

    Achtung: VERZ ist üblicherweise /Applications/

  3. Erstelle gleichartige Dateien lilypond-book, convert-ly und andere Skripte, die Sie benutzen wollen, wobei Sie bin/lilypond durch bin/convert-ly (oder andere Programmbezeichnungen) ersetzen.
  4. Machen Sie die Datei ausführbar:
    chmod u+x lilypond
    
  5. Jetzt müssen Sie das Verzeichnis zu Ihrem Pfad hinzufügen. Verändern (oder erstellen) Sie eine Datei mit dem Namen .profile in Ihrem home-Verzeichnis, sodass sie beinhaltet:
    export PATH=$PATH:~/bin
    

    Diese Datei sollte mit einer leeren Zeile schließen.

Einzelne Skripte aufrufen

Die Skripte – wie lilypond-book, convert-ly, abc2ly und auch lilypond selber – sind in einer .app-Datei für MacOS X enthalten.

Skripte können auch von der Kommandozeile aus aufgerufen werden, indem man sie direkt aufruft:

Pfad/zur/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/lilypond

Das gilt auch für alle anderen Skripte in diesem Verzeichnis, wie lilypond-book und convert-ly.

Um LilyPond zu entfernen, können Sie entweder

  1. den LilyPond-Ordner im Startmenü aufsuchen und auf„Uninstall“ klicken.  Klicken Sie „Fertigstellen“ wenn der Deinstaller fertig ist
  2. oder Sie gehen über die Systemsteuerung zu Software, suchen den Eintrag LilyPond und wählen die Option Entfernen. Klicken Sie auf „Fertigstellen“, wenn der Deinstaller fertig ist.

Compiling a file

Achtung: Diese Anweisungen gehen davon aus, dass Sie den installierten LilyPad-Editor benutzen. Wenn Sie eins der Programme benutzen, die in Leichteres Editieren beschrieben sind, schauen Sie bitte in der Dokumentation nach, wenn Sie Probleme damit haben, eine Datei zu kompilieren.

1. Schritt: Erstellen Sie eine ‘.ly’-Datei

Wenn sie auf das LilyPond-Symbol auf dem Desktop doppelklicken, öffnet sich ein einfacher Texteditor mit einer Beispieldatei.

pictures/LilyPad

Aus dem Menü über der Beispieldatei wählen Sie File > Save as. Benutzen Sie nicht File > Save für die Beispieldatei, weil die Datei nicht funktioniert, bis Sie sie mit einem eigenen Namen gespeichert haben.

pictures/FileSave

Wählen Sie einen Namen für Ihre Datei, etwa ‘test.ly’.

pictures/SaveAs

Schritt 2a: Kompilieren (mit drag-and-drop)

Sie können nach Belieben die Kompilation starten, indem Sie entweder:

Die Datei auf das LilyPond-Symbol ziehen.

pictures/DragDrop

Oder Sie klicken mit der rechten Maustaste auf die Datei und wählen Sie aus dem Menü Open with > LilyPond.

pictures/GenPDF

Schritt 2b: Kompilieren (mit Doppelklick)

Sie können auch einfach die Datei ‘test.ly’ doppelt anklicken.

3. Schritt: Ausgabe anschauen

Während der Kompilation von ‘test.ly’ öffnet sich ein Kommandofenster sehr schnell und schließt sich wieder. Drei zusätzliche Dateien werden in diesem Schritt erstellt.

Das PDF enthält den Notensatz aus der Datei ‘test.ly’.

pictures/PDFRead

Andere Befehle

Um eine neue Datei zu erstellen, wählen Sie File > New aus irgendeiner schon erstellten Datei oder File > Open, um eine Datei zu öffnen und zu bearbeiten, die Sie schon vorher gespeichert hatten.

pictures/EditFile

Sie müssen jede neue Änderung erst speichern, bevor Sie die Datei kompilieren. Wenn kein PDF erstellt wird, öffnen Sie die Log-Datei und schauen Sie nach Fehlern.

pictures/BadLog

Die Log-Datei wird jedes Mal überschrieben, wenn Sie Ihre LilyPond-Datei kompilieren.

Die PS-Datei wird intern von LilyPond benutzt um das PDF zu erstellen und kann ignoriert werden. Sie wird auch jedes Mal neu überschrieben.

Wenn Sie das PDF in einem PDF-Programm anschauen, müssen Sie es zuerst schließen, bevor Sie eine neue Kompilation durchführen können, denn es kann einen Fehler bei der Erstellung des neuen PDFs geben, wenn das alte noch geöffnet ist.

Benutzung auf der Kommandozeile

Achtung: Wenn Sie mit der GUI zufrieden sind, dann ignorieren Sie bitte diese Anweisungen.

Windows auf der Kommandozeile

Die einfachste Art LilyPond zu benutzen ist, den Installationsordner zur Umgebungsvariable „Path“ hinzuzufügen.

  1. Öffnen Sie „System“ aus der Systemsteuerung, wählen Sie den Reiter „Erweitert“ und klicken Sie auf Umgebungsvariablen.
  2. Wählen Sie die Variable „Path“ aus der Umgebungsvariablenliste und klicken Sie auf Bearbeiten. Sie erhalten ein Fenster mit der Überschrift „Systemvariable bearbeiten“, fügen Sie zum Feld „Wert der Variablen“ den Namen des Programmverzeichnisses hinzu, ewta so:
    [voreingestellter PATH];VERZ\LilyPond\usr\bin
    

    Achtung: VERZ ist üblicherweise C:\Program Files.

    und klicken Sie auf „OK“ um das Fenster zu schließen.

GPL

Software license

GNU LilyPond wird unter der GNU General Public License publiziert. Eine Einführung zu der Lizenz und unsere Gründe für diese Wahl finden Sie in Freiheit.

GNU General Public License

Version 3, 29 June 2007

 
Copyright © 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. http://fsf.org/

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble

The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works.

The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program—to make sure it remains free software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.

For the developers’ and authors’ protection, the GPL clearly explains that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users’ and authors’ sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to authors of previous versions.

Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of protecting users’ freedom to change the software. The systematic pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.

Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents. States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  1. Definitions.

    “This License” refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.

    “Copyright” also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of works, such as semiconductor masks.

    “The Program” refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this License. Each licensee is addressed as “you”. “Licensees” and “recipients” may be individuals or organizations.

    To “modify” a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an exact copy. The resulting work is called a “modified version” of the earlier work or a work “based on” the earlier work.

    A “covered work” means either the unmodified Program or a work based on the Program.

    To “propagate” a work means to do anything with it that, without permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying, distribution (with or without modification), making available to the public, and in some countries other activities as well.

    To “convey” a work means any kind of propagation that enables other parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.

    An interactive user interface displays “Appropriate Legal Notices” to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2) tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.

  2. Source Code.

    The “source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. “Object code” means any non-source form of a work.

    A “Standard Interface” means an interface that either is an official standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that is widely used among developers working in that language.

    The “System Libraries” of an executable work include anything, other than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an implementation is available to the public in source code form. A “Major Component”, in this context, means a major essential component (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.

    The “Corresponding Source” for a work in object code form means all the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to control those activities. However, it does not include the work’s System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source includes interface definition files associated with source files for the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require, such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those subprograms and other parts of the work.

    The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding Source.

    The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that same work.

  3. Basic Permissions.

    All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.

    You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.

    Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10 makes it unnecessary.

  4. Protecting Users’ Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.

    No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such measures.

    When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work’s users, your or third parties’ legal rights to forbid circumvention of technological measures.

  5. Conveying Verbatim Copies.

    You may convey verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice; keep intact all notices stating that this License and any non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code; keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.

    You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey, and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.

  6. Conveying Modified Source Versions.

    You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

    1. The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified it, and giving a relevant date.
    2. The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is released under this License and any conditions added under section 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to “keep intact all notices”.
    3. You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts, regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
    4. If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your work need not make them do so.

    A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work, and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an “aggregate” if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation’s users beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other parts of the aggregate.

  7. Conveying Non-Source Forms.

    You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License, in one of these ways:

    1. Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium customarily used for software interchange.
    2. Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
    3. Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord with subsection 6b.
    4. Convey the object code by offering access from a designated place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party) that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
    5. Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no charge under subsection 6d.

    A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be included in conveying the object code work.

    A “User Product” is either (1) a “consumer product”, which means any tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family, or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product, doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular product received by a particular user, “normally used” refers to a typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent the only significant mode of use of the product.

    “Installation Information” for a User Product means any methods, procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because modification has been made.

    If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has been installed in ROM).

    The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a network may be denied when the modification itself materially and adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and protocols for communication across the network.

    Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided, in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly documented (and with an implementation available to the public in source code form), and must require no special password or key for unpacking, reading or copying.

  8. Additional Terms.

    “Additional permissions” are terms that supplement the terms of this License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions. Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by this License without regard to the additional permissions.

    When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work, for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.

    Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:

    1. Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
    2. Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal Notices displayed by works containing it; or
    3. Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
    4. Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or authors of the material; or
    5. Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
    6. Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on those licensors and authors.

    All other non-permissive additional terms are considered “further restrictions” within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is governed by this License along with a term that is a further restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms of that license document, provided that the further restriction does not survive such relicensing or conveying.

    If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating where to find the applicable terms.

    Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions; the above requirements apply either way.

  9. Termination.

    You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third paragraph of section 11).

    However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation.

    Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice.

    Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same material under section 10.

  10. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.

    You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However, nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.

  11. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.

    Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.

    An “entity transaction” is a transaction transferring control of an organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered work results from an entity transaction, each party to that transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever licenses to the work the party’s predecessor in interest had or could give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.

    You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.

  12. Patents.

    A “contributor” is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The work thus licensed is called the contributor’s “contributor version”.

    A contributor’s “essential patent claims” are all patent claims owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version, but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For purposes of this definition, “control” includes the right to grant patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of this License.

    Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent license under the contributor’s essential patent claims, to make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and propagate the contents of its contributor version.

    In the following three paragraphs, a “patent license” is any express agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to sue for patent infringement). To “grant” such a patent license to a party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a patent against the party.

    If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license, and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a publicly available network server or other readily accessible means, then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent license to downstream recipients. “Knowingly relying” means you have actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the covered work in a country, or your recipient’s use of the covered work in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that country that you have reason to believe are valid.

    If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered work and works based on it.

    A patent license is “discriminatory” if it does not include within the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily for and in connection with specific products or compilations that contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement, or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.

    Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.

  13. No Surrender of Others’ Freedom.

    If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.

  14. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.

    Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work, but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License, section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the combination as such.

  15. Revised Versions of this License.

    The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.

    Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General Public License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

    If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Program.

    Later license versions may give you additional or different permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a later version.

  16. Disclaimer of Warranty.

    THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

  17. Limitation of Liability.

    IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

  18. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.

    If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms, reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a copy of the Program in return for a fee.

END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the “copyright” line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

 
one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.
Copyright (C) year name of author

This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at
your option) any later version.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but
WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the GNU
General Public License for more details.

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
along with this program.  If not, see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/.

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:

 
program Copyright (C) year name of author
This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type ‘show w’.
This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
under certain conditions; type ‘show c’ for details.

The hypothetical commands ‘show w’ and ‘show c’ should show the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program’s commands might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an “about box”.

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school, if any, to sign a “copyright disclaimer” for the program, if necessary. For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/.

The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General Public License instead of this License. But first, please read http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html.

Lizenz der Dokumentation

Die Dokumentation für GNU LilyPond wird unter der GNU Free Documentation License publiziert. Eine Einführung in diese Lizenz und Gründe für ihre Benutzung finden sich in Freiheit.

GNU Free Documentation License 1.1

Version 1.3, 3 November 2008

 
Copyright © 2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
http://fsf.org/

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
  1. PREAMBLE

    The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and useful document free in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it, with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by others.

    This License is a kind of “copyleft”, which means that derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense. It complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft license designed for free software.

    We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free software, because free software needs free documentation: a free program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the software does. But this License is not limited to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a printed book. We recommend this License principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.

  2. APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS

    This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be distributed under the terms of this License. Such a notice grants a world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that work under the conditions stated herein. The “Document”, below, refers to any such manual or work. Any member of the public is a licensee, and is addressed as “you”. You accept the license if you copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission under copyright law.

    A “Modified Version” of the Document means any work containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with modifications and/or translated into another language.

    A “Secondary Section” is a named appendix or a front-matter section of the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the Document’s overall subject (or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject. (Thus, if the Document is in part a textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.) The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding them.

    The “Invariant Sections” are certain Secondary Sections whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. If a section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it is not allowed to be designated as Invariant. The Document may contain zero Invariant Sections. If the Document does not identify any Invariant Sections then there are none.

    The “Cover Texts” are certain short passages of text that are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that the Document is released under this License. A Front-Cover Text may be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words.

    A “Transparent” copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose specification is available to the general public, that is suitable for revising the document straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text formatters. A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart or discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent. An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount of text. A copy that is not “Transparent” is called “Opaque”.

    Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modification. Examples of transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG. Opaque formats include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or processing tools are not generally available, and the machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word processors for output purposes only.

    The “Title Page” means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, “Title Page” means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work’s title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text.

    The “publisher” means any person or entity that distributes copies of the Document to the public.

    A section “Entitled XYZ” means a named subunit of the Document whose title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following text that translates XYZ in another language. (Here XYZ stands for a specific section name mentioned below, such as “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, “Endorsements”, or “History”.) To “Preserve the Title” of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a section “Entitled XYZ” according to this definition.

    The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which states that this License applies to the Document. These Warranty Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has no effect on the meaning of this License.

  3. VERBATIM COPYING

    You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this License. You may not use technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or distribute. However, you may accept compensation in exchange for copies. If you distribute a large enough number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.

    You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and you may publicly display copies.

  4. COPYING IN QUANTITY

    If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the Document’s license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back cover. Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify you as the publisher of these copies. The front cover must present the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and visible. You may add other material on the covers in addition. Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim copying in other respects.

    If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent pages.

    If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy a computer-network location from which the general network-using public has access to download using public-standard network protocols a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material. If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps, when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that edition to the public.

    It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.

  5. MODIFICATIONS

    You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy of it. In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version:

    1. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section of the Document). You may use the same title as a previous version if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
    2. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than five), unless they release you from this requirement.
    3. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the Modified Version, as the publisher.
    4. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
    5. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications adjacent to the other copyright notices.
    6. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice giving the public permission to use the Modified Version under the terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.
    7. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections and required Cover Texts given in the Document’s license notice.
    8. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
    9. Preserve the section Entitled “History”, Preserve its Title, and add to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page. If there is no section Entitled “History” in the Document, create one stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified Version as stated in the previous sentence.
    10. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise the network locations given in the Document for previous versions it was based on. These may be placed in the “History” section. You may omit a network location for a work that was published at least four years before the Document itself, or if the original publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.
    11. For any section Entitled “Acknowledgements” or “Dedications”, Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the section all the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements and/or dedications given therein.
    12. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document, unaltered in their text and in their titles. Section numbers or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.
    13. Delete any section Entitled “Endorsements”. Such a section may not be included in the Modified Version.
    14. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled “Endorsements” or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
    15. Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.

    If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all of these sections as invariant. To do this, add their titles to the list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version’s license notice. These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.

    You may add a section Entitled “Endorsements”, provided it contains nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by various parties—for example, statements of peer review or that the text has been approved by an organization as the authoritative definition of a standard.

    You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list of Cover Texts in the Modified Version. Only one passage of Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or through arrangements made by) any one entity. If the Document already includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of, you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.

    The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or imply endorsement of any Modified Version.

  6. COMBINING DOCUMENTS

    You may combine the Document with other documents released under this License, under the terms defined in section 4 above for modified versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodified, and list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.

    The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single copy. If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but different contents, make the title of each such section unique by adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number. Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work.

    In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled “History” in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled “History”; likewise combine any sections Entitled “Acknowledgements”, and any sections Entitled “Dedications”. You must delete all sections Entitled “Endorsements.”

  7. COLLECTIONS OF DOCUMENTS

    You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.

    You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document.

  8. AGGREGATION WITH INDEPENDENT WORKS

    A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an “aggregate” if the copyright resulting from the compilation is not used to limit the legal rights of the compilation’s users beyond what the individual works permit. When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves derivative works of the Document.

    If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one half of the entire aggregate, the Document’s Cover Texts may be placed on covers that bracket the Document within the aggregate, or the electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form. Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole aggregate.

  9. TRANSLATION

    Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4. Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special permission from their copyright holders, but you may include translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the original versions of these Invariant Sections. You may include a translation of this License, and all the license notices in the Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also include the original English version of this License and the original versions of those notices and disclaimers. In case of a disagreement between the translation and the original version of this License or a notice or disclaimer, the original version will prevail.

    If a section in the Document is Entitled “Acknowledgements”, “Dedications”, or “History”, the requirement (section 4) to Preserve its Title (section 1) will typically require changing the actual title.

  10. TERMINATION

    You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.

    However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation.

    Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice.

    Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently reinstated, receipt of a copy of some or all of the same material does not give you any rights to use it.

  11. FUTURE REVISIONS OF THIS LICENSE

    The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. See http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/.

    Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number. If the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that specified version or of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation. If the Document specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions of this License can be used, that proxy’s public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you to choose that version for the Document.

  12. RELICENSING

    “Massive Multiauthor Collaboration Site” (or “MMC Site”) means any World Wide Web server that publishes copyrightable works and also provides prominent facilities for anybody to edit those works. A public wiki that anybody can edit is an example of such a server. A “Massive Multiauthor Collaboration” (or “MMC”) contained in the site means any set of copyrightable works thus published on the MMC site.

    “CC-BY-SA” means the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license published by Creative Commons Corporation, a not-for-profit corporation with a principal place of business in San Francisco, California, as well as future copyleft versions of that license published by that same organization.

    “Incorporate” means to publish or republish a Document, in whole or in part, as part of another Document.

    An MMC is “eligible for relicensing” if it is licensed under this License, and if all works that were first published under this License somewhere other than this MMC, and subsequently incorporated in whole or in part into the MMC, (1) had no cover texts or invariant sections, and (2) were thus incorporated prior to November 1, 2008.

    The operator of an MMC Site may republish an MMC contained in the site under CC-BY-SA on the same site at any time before August 1, 2009, provided the MMC is eligible for relicensing.

ADDENDUM: How to use this License for your documents

To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of the License in the document and put the following copyright and license notices just after the title page:

 
  Copyright (C)  year  your name.
  Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
  under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.3
  or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
  with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover
  Texts.  A copy of the license is included in the section entitled ``GNU
  Free Documentation License''.

If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts, replace the “with…Texts.” line with this:

 
    with the Invariant Sections being list their titles, with
    the Front-Cover Texts being list, and with the Back-Cover Texts
    being list.

If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to suit the situation.

If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of free software license, such as the GNU General Public License, to permit their use in free software.

Minimalbeispiele

Was sind „Minimalbeispiele“?

Ein Minimalbeispiel ist eine vollständige Quelldatei, die nicht mehr weiter reduziert werden kann, ohne dass das illustrierte Problem verschwindet. Es sollten keine Warnungen und Fehlermeldungen produziert werden, die nicht mit dem Problem im Zusammenhang stehen.

Warum sollte ich Minimalbeispiele erstellen?

  • Je einfacher ein Beispiel ist, um so schneller können mögliche Hilfeleistende das Beispiel untersuchen, das auftretende Problem einkreisen und Ihnen helfen.
  • Die effiziente Analyse eines Problems erfordert ohnehin eine Reduktion auf das wesentliche. Kippen Sie umfangreiches Material in der Liste ab, so scheint Ihnen die Lösung Ihres Problems keine eigene Mühe wert.
  • Ein Minimalbeispiel zu erstellen hilft Ihnen zu verstehen, was vorgeht. Viele Problemberichte erübrigen sich schon während der Erstellung eines Minimalbeispiels. Ist ein „Bug“ mit einem bestimmten Minimalbeispiel nicht reproduzierbar, ist es wahrscheinlich, daß er andere Ursachen als vermutet hat.

Wie werden sie erstellt?

  • Immer die \version-Nummer einfügen.
  • Machen Sie es klein! Beispiele zur Platzverteilung oder dem Seitenlayout können viele Notentakte erfordern, aber die meisten Probleme können in weniger als einem einzigen Takt gezeigt werden.
  • Wenn Sie versuchen, ein Beispiel zu erstellen, versuchen Sie zuerst, Abschnitt Ihrer Datei auszukommentieren (% oder %{ … %}). Wenn Sie etwas auskommentieren können, und das Problem immer noch gezeigt wird, entfernen Sie die auskommentierten Abschnitte.
  • Vermeiden Sie komplizierte Noten, Tonarten, Schlüssel oder Taktarten, es sei denn Ihr Problem hat mit ihnen etwas zu tun.
  • Benutzen Sie nicht \override oder \set, es sei denn, der Fehler zeigt sich im Zusammenhang mit diesen Befehlen.
  • Sie können auch zusätzlich ein Bild anhängen, welches die gewünschte graphische Darstellung zeigt.

Wie klein sollten sie sein?

Ist der Code unten ein Minimalbeispiel?

\version "2.14.1"
\include "english.ly"

\score {
  \new Staff {
    \key d \major
    \numericTimeSignature
    \time 2/4
    <cs' d'' b''>16 <cs' d'' b''>8.
    %% Here: the tie on the D's looks funny
    %% Too tall? Left-hand endpoint is not aligned with the B tie?
    ~
    <cs' d'' b''>8 [ <b d'' a''> ]
  }
}

Das ist zwar kein langer Code, aber ein wirkliches Minimalbeispiel ist folgendes:

\version "2.14.1"
{
  % middle tie looks funny here:
  <c' d'' b''>8. ~ <c' d'' b''>8
}

Wenige Minimalbeispiele brauchen mehr als 10 Zeilen, meistens kann das Problem mit vier Zeilen gezeigt werden!


Fehlerberichte

Wenn Ihre Datei zu einem Programmabsturz oder falschem Notensatz führt, handelt es sich um einen Fehler.

1. Schritt: Bekannte Fehler

Vielleicht ist der Fehler schon bekannt. Prüfen Sie hier:

http://code.google.com/p/lilypond/issues/list

Achtung: Bitte fügen Sie NICHT selber neue Fehlerberichte hinzu! Wenn der Fehler einmal im Bug-Tracker zu sehen ist, können Sie selber weitere Informationen hinzufügen.

2. Schritt: Einen Fehlerbericht erstellen

Wenn Sie einen Fehler entdeckt haben, der nicht aufgelistet ist, helfen Sie uns bitte, indem Sie einen Fehlerbericht (bug report) erstellen.

Achtung: Wir akzeptieren Fehlerberichte nur als Minimalbeispiele. Wir haben sehr begrenzte Ressourcen, weshalb jedes nicht-Minimalbeispiel zurückgewiesen wird. Fast jeder Fehler kann mit vier oder sogar weniger Noten demonstriert werden!

Hier ein Beispiel eines guten bug reports:

% Accidentals should be printed for only
% the first note in a tie, but this version
% prints flats on both notes.
\version "2.10.1"

\relative c'' {
 bes1 ~
 bes1
}

3. Schritt: Einsenden eines Fehlerberichtes

Wenn Sie sichergestellt haben, dass der Fehler noch nicht bekannt ist und einen Fehlerbericht erstellt haben, senden sie ihn bitte uns zu!

  • Wenn Sie die Emailliste +bug-lilypond@gnu.org bereits abonniert haben, können Sie ganz gewöhnlich eine E-Mail schicken.
  • Wenn Sie nicht Mitglied der Liste sind, können Sie trotzdem einen Fehlerbericht über die gmane lilypond.bugs web interface schicken.

    Es gibt jedoch eine genaue Überprüfung auf der Liste, die verhindert, dass man top-posted. Diese Überprüfung wird häufig inkorrekt von LilyPond-Dateien alarmiert. Darum fügen Sie

    > I'm not top posting.
    

    (Sie müssen das > mit einfügen) zu Anfang ihres Fehlerberichtes hinzu.

4. Schritt: Auf Antwort warten

Wenn Ihr Fehlerbericht an die Liste versandt wurde, untersucht unser Fehlerbeseitiger (engl. bug squad) den Bericht. Sie werden eventuell nach mehr Information gefragt. Sie werden informiert, wann der Bericht um Tracker hinzugefüt wird. Warten Sie bitte vier Tage, da uns nur eine geringe Zahl an Helfern zur Verfügung stehen.

Wenn ein Fehler dem Tracker hinzugefügt wurde, können Sie ihn kommentieren, um mehr Information hinzuzufügen. Sie können den Fehler auch markieren, sodass Sie immer eine E-Mail erhalten, wenn Aktivität für diesen Fehler vorkommt. Hierzu müssen Sie einen Google-Account haben.

Optionale Hilfe: Das gewünschte Verhalten erklären

Wenn ein Fehlerbericht einmal dem Tracker hinzugefügt wurde, kann es sehr hilfreich sein, wenn wir sehen können, wie die gewünschte Ausgabe aussieht. Sie können beliebig Code, Text und Bilder (auch mit anderen Programmen erstellt) hinzufügen, die das gewünschte Bild demonstrieren.


Helfen Sie uns

Wir brauchen Sie!

Vielen Dank, dass Sie sich dafür interessieren, uns zu helfen – wir freuen uns sehr, wenn Sie sich einbringen. Bitte denken Sie daran, dass Sie auch allen anderen LilyPond-Benutzern helfen, wenn Sie sich an der Entwicklung beteiligen.

Auch kleine Aufgaben können große Auswirkungen haben: wenn man sich ihnen annimmt, können sich die erfahrenen Entwickler den schwierigen Aufgaben widmen anstatt diese einfachen Probleme zu lösen.

Bei einem so großen und vielfältigen Projekt wie LilyPond ist es oft schwierig zu entscheiden, wo man anfangen soll. Zusätzlich zu den Vorschlägen, die sich weiter unten finden, können Sie auch eine E-Mail (auf Englisch) an den Frog meister schicken und Ihre Fähigkeiten mitteilen, sodass er Ihnen einen Einstieg zeigen oder Ihnen bei ihren eigenen Projekten helfen kann.

Einfache Aufgaben

Keine Kentnisse im Programmieren benötigt!

  • Unterstützung auf der Mailingliste: beantworten Sie Fragen von anderen Benutzern.
  • Fehlerberichte: helfen Sie anderen Benutzern, richtige Fehlerberichte zu erstellen und/oder schließen Sie sich dem Fehlerteam an, um die Probleme zu verwalten.
  • Grand Regression Test Checking: Verfizieren Sie, dass LilyPond richtig arbeitet, indem Sie die Ausgabe der Testschnipsel überprüfen. Ein Schnipsel zu überprüfen dauert weniger als eine Minute!
  • Dokumentation: kleine Änderungen (immer zuerst auf Englisch) können vorgeschlagen werden, wenn die Richtlinien von Vorschläge für die Dokumentation beachtet werden.
  • Das LilyPond-Schnipsel-Depot (LSR): erstellen und reparieren Sie Schnipsel nach den Richtlinien in Hinzufügen und Bearbeiten von Schnipseln..
  • Diskussionen, Gutachten und Testen: die Entwickler brauchen oft Feedback zu neuer Dokumentation, möglichen Änderungen der Syntax und um neue Funktionen zu testen. Bitte nehmen Sie an diesen Diskussionen teil!

Fortgeschrittene Aufgaben

Diese Aufgaben setzen voraus, dass Sie die Quellen von Programm und Dokumentation haben und die Quellen auch kompilieren können.

Achtung: Wir empfehlen, dass Beitragende, die Windows oder MacOS X benutzen, nicht ihre eigene Entwicklungsumgebung einrichten, sondern anstattdessen lilybuntu benutzen, welches besprochen ist in Schnellstart.

Beitragende, die GNU/Linux oder FreBSD benutzen, können auch lilybuntu einsetzen, aber wenn Sie Ihre eigene Entwicklungsumgebung einrichten wollen, lesen Sie bitte Mit dem Sourcecode arbeiten und Kompilieren.

Beginnen Sie, indem Sie das Kapitel Zusammenfassung für erfahrene Entwickler lesen.


Sponsoren

Materielle Hilfe

In der Vergangenheit

  • haben einige Benutzers für neue Eigenschaften bezahlt
  • haben sich einige Entwickler einstellen lassen, um neue Eigenschaften hinzuzufügen

Das LilyPond-Projekt kann derartige Verabredungen nicht koordinieren, wir wollen deshalb weder dazu aufrufen noch davon abraten. Jegliche Abkommen zwischen privaten Personen beziehen sich nur auf diese Personen, ncht auf das LilyPond-Projekt.

Richtlinien

Jeder Benutzer, der Geld gegen Arbeit eintauschen will, sollte Folgendes im Auge behalten:

  • LilyPond-Entwickler können ihre Angebote auf den E-Mail-Listen von Zeit zu Zeit bewerben.
  • Jegliche Abkommen zwischen privaten Personen sollten die normalen Vorsichtsmaßnahmen beinhalten: wer bezahlt, wieviel bezahlt werden soll, mit welcher Methoden und nach welchen Bedingungen. Wir empfehlen, dass alle Unklarheiten bezüglich dieser Punkte geklärt werden sollten, bevor die Arbeit beginng.

Interessierte Entwickler

Hier ist eine Liste der Leute, die sich Dienstleistungen sponsoren lassen. Die Menge an Arbeit, die unterschiedliche Entwickler im Laufe des Jahres vollbringen, kann stark schwanken. Wir können nicht garantieren, dass die Liste aktuell ist oder die Leute auf der Liste über bestimmte Fähigkeiten verfügen. Das einzige Kriterium ist, dass die entsprechende Person um Aufnahme in die Liste gebeten hat.

Ein Blick auf die erbrachten Leistungen im git-Repositorium ist eine gute Art sich über Aktivität und Erfahrenheit von Entwicklern Klarheit zu verschaffen. Statistiken bis 2.19.5:

Spenden sind notwendig, damit ich meine aktuelle Vollzeitbeschäftigung an LilyPond aufrechterhalten kann. Ich konzentriere mich auf das Schnittstellendesign für Benutzer und Programmieren, auf Kohäränz, Implementation, Vereinfachung, Dokumentation und Fehlerbeseitigung.


Entwicklung

Entwicklung für LilyPond 2.19.5

Achtung: Hier handelt es sich um nicht stabile Entwicklerversionen. Wenn Sie nicht genau wissen, wie man LilyPond installiert und benutzt, empfehlen wir ausdrücklich, die stabilen Download-Versionen zu benutzen und die stabilen Handbücher zu lesen.

Veröffentlichungsnummern

Es gibt zwei Veröffentlichungsreihen für LilyPond: stabile Versionen und die unstabilen Entwicklerversionen. Stabile Versionen haben eine gerade zweite Versionsnummer (also etwa 2.8, 2.10, 2.12). Entwicklerversionen haben eine ungerade zweite Versionsnummer (also 2.7, 2.9, 2.11).

GSoC (Google Summer of Code) 2012

Was ist Google Summer of Code?

Google Summer of Code ist ein globales Programm, das Studenten Stipendien offeriert, um an Open-Source-Projekten während der Sommerferien zu arbeiten.

Das LilyPond-Team hat beschlossen, dass sich hier eine ausgezeichnete Möglichkeit bietet neue Mitarbeiter zu finden und Studenten, die sich schon an LilyPond beteiligen, weiter einzubinden. Einer unserer Mitarbeiter wurde für den Sommer 2012 als Teil des GNU-Projekts angenommen; wir hoffen, dass wir auch in kommenden Jahren an dem Programm teilnehmen können.

Unsere Ideenliste 2012

Unten befindet sich eine Liste mit empfohlenen Projekten für GSoC-Stundenten für den Sommer 2012. Wenn auch die Anmeldefrist vorbei ist, lassen wir die Informationen trotzdem online, weil sie als Anregung für alle LilyPond-Entwickler dienen können. Einige Mitglieder des Entwicklungsteams helfen gerne Freiwilligen, die sich an diese Projekte wagen wollen.

Es gibt natürlich viel mehr, was an LilyPond verbessert werden kann, darunter auch sehr kleine Projekte. Eine vollständige Liste aller bekannten Probleme findet sich hier.

Stichnoten

Lösen Sie Probleme mit der Synchronisation von Verzierungen (Vorschläge usw.), zusammen mit der darunter liegenden Architektur (siehe Nummer 34 in unserem Tracker). Verzierungen bringen das Zeitmaß von LilyPond durcheinander, weil sie sozusagen in der Zeit rückwärts gehen. Dadurch entstehen seltsame Effekte, besonders wenn in einem Notensystem eine Verzierung auftritt und im zweiten nicht.

Schwierigkeit: mittel

Erfordernisse: C++, MIDI

Empfohlen: Bekannt mit den Interna von LilyPond

Mentoren: Mike Solomon, Carl Sorensen

MusicXML

Hinzufügen von erweiterter Unterstützung für den Export von MusicXML und Verbesserung des Imports, zusätzlich Tests, die die Funktionen überprüfen. Abhängig von der zur Verfügung stehenden Zeit kann etwas oder alles der folgenden Punkte implementiert werden:

  • Der Export soll grundlegende Funktionen wie den MIDI-Export können (d. h. die Benutzung von eigenen Exportklassen, abgeleitet von der Übersetzerklasse.)
  • Der XML-Baum soll aus dem grundlegenden musikalischen Inhalt erstellt werden, hinzu kommt eine Verbindung von musikalischem Ereignis zu XML-Tag.
  • Alle LilyPond-Engraver sollen ihre Arbeit verrichten.
  • Alle Ausgabe-Objekte (also alle Stencils/Gruppen von Stencils) sollen der Musik zugeordnet werden (und damit auch dem XML-Tag im XML-Baum).
  • Ein XML-Ausgabebackend soll hinzugefügt werden, welches die Layoutinformationen für jedes Ausgabe-Objekt den XML-Tags hinzufügen kann.

Das Ziel wird als erreicht angesehen, wenn eine (vorher festgelegte) Partitur von MusicXML importiert und dann wieder exportiert werden kann, ohne dass ungewollter Datenverlust eintritt.

Schwierigkeit: mittel

Erfordernisse: MusicXML, Python, grundlegene Kenntnis von LilyPond

Mentoren: Reinhold Kainhofer, Mike Solomon

Kenntnis anderer Notensatzprogramme (zum Testen) wäre ein netter Bonus.

Binde- und Legatobögen verbessern

Die Standardform von Binde- und Legatobögen ist oft nicht zufriedenstellend. Überbindungen von enharmonischen Tönen (etwa { cis'~ des' }) werden nicht unterstützt, auch Überbindungen, die von Schlüssel- oder Systemwechsel unterprochen werden, sind schlecht unterstützt. Das Projekt beinhaltet das Sammeln und Sortieren von Beispielen schlechter Ausgabe, das feststellen der richtigen Formatierung und das Schreiben das dazu notwendigen Codes.

Schwierigkeit: schwer

Erfordernisse: C++, Erfahrung mit Heuristiken

Empfohlene Kenntnisse: LilyPond-Kenntniss, Sinn für Ästhetik

Mentor: Mike Solomon

Eine besondere Variante bestimmter Glyphen hinzufügen

Zusätzliche Varianten von Glyphen schaffen für Situationen wie auf der Linie, zwischen den Linien, kürzere und schmalere Varianten für z. B. Versetzungszeichen, zusammen mit einer Infrastruktur, die das unterstützt. Ein Beispiel ist die Breve der Alten Notation, deren Notenkopf in zwei Varianten vorkommt, mit kleinerem und größerem Loch.

Schwierigkeit: leicht

Erfordernisse: MetaFont, C++, gutes Auge für Details

Empfohlene Kenntnisse: grundlegene LilyPond-Kenntnis

Mentor: Werner Lemberg

Bebalkung verbessern

Die Standardpositionen von normaler Bebalkung, Bebalkung über Systeme hinweg, unterbrochene und Knie-Bebaklung sollte verbessert werden. Balken sollten sich am Kontext und benachbarten Noten orientieren (siehe Abschnitt 2.2). Wenn möglich, sollte die Rechenzeit für die Bebalkung verkürzt werden.

Schwierigkeit: mittel

Erfordernisse: C++, Erfahrung mit Heuristiken

Empfohlene Kenntnisse: Sinn für Ästhetik

Mentoren: Mike Solomon, Carl Sorensen

Kompilationswarnungen aufräumen

Aufräumen von Kompilationswarnungen, statischer Codeanalyse und Valgrind-Warnungen. Werkzeuge zur automatischen Analyse von Code (Warnungen in g++ und clang) und Analysewerkzeuge wie die Valgrind-memory-leak-detection und callgrind code profiler stellen wertvolle Informationen über mögliche Probleme im C++-Code zu Verfügung. Wenn man diese Warnungen aufräumt, könnte man auch automatisch alle Patche zurückweisen, die neue Warnungen mit sich bringen würden.

Schwierigkeit: mittel

Erfordernisse: C++

Mentoren: Joe Neeman, Reinhold Kainhofer

Please consider this release as a 3.0 pre-release so try to find as many bugs as possible. A report including a small .ly example can be filed at bug-lilypond@gnu.org In this case, a bug is defined as something that the current 2.3 does worse than the latest 2.2 release.

LilyPond 2.3.9 is out. The important change is that lilypond now once-again directly runs the binary. The old wrapper script has been renamed to lilypond-latex.py, and should only be used for legacy projects. The recommended route is either using lilypond directly (with \book, you can have multiple movements within one document), or to run lilypond-book with a LaTeX wrapper file. This release also fixes a bunch of small errors. I now consider LilyPond feature complete for a 3.0 release. Next on the TODO list is updating the manual, and after that’s done we can release 3.0.
