Thank you for this. It didn't occur to me there would be a new reference
manual for each new edition. Nor did it occur to me that there would be
such a thing as odd-numbered editions for developers. I am a musician, a
composer, one who has gotten quite a bit of really good use from
Lilipond. It fits my particular needs for vocal music much better than the
drag and drop programs. But I'm not a developer, and it's difficult for me
to parse a lot of the tech jargon. In fact, I'm leaving this group. It's
obviously not for me. I appreciate the help. I've compiled my own little
personal manual that works for a non-techy like myself, and this new piece
of code will be a useful addition to it.

Thanks again,

John Bari
