NAME
       abcselect - manipulates music in	abc format

SYNOPSIS
       abcselect  [-?]	[-X  xrefs] [-V	voices]	[-P parts] [-Q movements] [-c]
       [infile]

DESCRIPTION
       abcselect reads an input	file containing	music in abc format  and  out-
       puts a modified version in abc format.

       The  output  is	written	 to  stdout  and  can  be  piped directly into
       abctab2ps. If no	input file is given, the input is read from stdin.

       All numbers specified in	the options refer to the  cardinal  number  of
       the  corresponding  info	 field,	 not  to  the actual value of the info
       field. E.g. the first tune is always specified with "-X 1",  regardless
       of the value in the "X:"	field.

OPTIONS

       -X xrefs

	      rated list of tune numbers or ranges, eg.	"-X 1-3,6". When omit-
	      ted, all tunes are printed.

       -V voices
	      select  specified	 voices. voices	must be	a comma	separated list
