       This program is a multiplatform MIDI file player	for Linux, Windows and
       macOS.  It reads	.MID (Standard MIDI Files), .KAR (Karaoke), .RMI (RIFF

       hardware	MIDI ports and also software synths.

	      Prints brief usage information.

       -v, --version
	      Prints the current version number.

       -p, --portable
	      Portable settings	mode.

       -f, --file portableFile
	      Portable settings	file name.

       -d, --driver driver
	      Drumstick::RT MIDI Out Driver.

       -c, --connection	connection
	      Drumstick::RT MIDI Out Connection.

   Standard Options
       The following options apply to all Qt5 applications:

       -style= style / -style style
	      Set  the	application  GUI style.	 Possible values depend	on the
	      system configuration.  If	Qt is compiled with additional	styles
	      or  has  additional styles as plugins these will be available to
	      the -style command line option.

       -stylesheet= stylesheet / -stylesheet stylesheet
	      Set the application styleSheet.  The value must be a path	 to  a
	      file that	contains the Style Sheet.

	      Print  debug message at the end about number of widgets left un-
	      destroyed	and maximum number of  widgets	existed	 at  the  same

	      Set the application's layout direction to	Qt::RightToLeft.  This
	      option is	intended to aid	debugging and should not  be  used  in
	      production.   The	 default  value	is automatically detected from
	      the user's locale	(see also QLocale::textDirection()).

       -platform platformName[:options]
	      Specify the Qt Platform Abstraction (QPA)	plugin.

       -platformpluginpath path
	      Specify the path to platform plugins.

       -platformtheme platformTheme
	      Specify the platform theme.

       -plugin plugin
	      Specify additional plugins to load.   The	 argument  may	appear
	      multiple times.

       -qwindowgeometry	geometry
	      Specify  the  window  geometry  for  the	main  window using the
	      X11-syntax.  For example:	-qwindowgeometry 100x100+50+50

       -qwindowicon icon
	      Set the default window icon.

       -qwindowtitle title
	      Set the title of the first window.

       -session	session
	      Restore the application from an earlier session.

       -display	hostname:screen_number
	      Switch displays on X11.  Overrides the DISPLAY environment vari-

       -geometry geometry
	      Specify the window geometry for the main window on X11.  For ex-
	      ample: -geometry 100x100+50+50

       -dialogs= [xp|none]
	      Only available for the Windows platform.	XP uses	 native	 style
	      dialogs and none disables	them.

       -fontengine= freetype
	      Use the FreeType font engine.

	      Input  MID/KAR/RMI/WRK  file  name(s).  The set of provided file
	      names becomes a temporary	playlist.

       *.lst  Playlist files.  The last	opened or saved	playlist file shall be
	      remembered  the  next time the program is	started, but playlists
	      are not saved automatically.

	      Playlists	are simple text	files, with a file name	on  each  text
	      line.   The  file	 names	can be relative	to the location	of the
	      playlist file itself (so they  do	 not  have  an	absolute  path
	      prepended) or each file can have an absolute path	on its own.

	      Users may	have several playlists that can	be created easily out-
	      side of the program, for instance	in the Linux command line this
	      command creates a	playlist file named "my_playlist.lst" with all
	      the MIDI files located at	the working directory:

	      $	ls -1 *.mid > my_playlist.lst

	      Location of Drumstick::RT	plugins.  Useful if  the  plugins  are
	      not installed at a standard place.
