Projects / Chordpack


Chordpack is a tool written in Perl, whose purpose is to typeset song-books/songs written in chordpro format. The typesetting is done using typepesetting system TeX using macro package LaTeX. Chordpack has ambition to do whatever you might want to do with songs in chordpro format. Chordpack currently can generate LaTeX source of songs/songbook, generate HTML version of songs/songbook, generate ASCII version of songs/songbook, generate ASCII version of songs/songbook omitting chords, transpose chordpro song to desired key, take ordinary ASCII notation of song with chords, and output almost chordpro version. Chordpack features four styles of chord setting, three styles of song titles setting, an option to chose one or two columns, an option to chose fonts sizes, on-the-fly transposition to a key with minimum difficult chords (as an option), and other features. Chordpack does not currently set chord diagrams.
