Philip's Music Writer is a program for typesetting music. It reads text files as input, and generates PostScript as output. It can also write simple MIDI files for proofhearing purposes. PMW is written in C and is freestanding; that is, it does not require additional processing software. It is a Linux/Unix port of a program that has run for over a decade on Acorn systems, where it was known as Philip's Music Scribe.
The Montage FR-1 slide printer driver allows you to use a Lasergraphics Montage FR-1 slide printer attached to your Linux box via the generic SCSI interface. The core program takes a PPM file as input and causes the printer to expose a slide with that image. Additional scripts are provided to embed the core program into the BSD printing system. This allows you to expose any PostScript file, and to actually print to your slide printer.
The mp program will pretty print various files for you. It can be used in conjunction with a mail reading utility for producing a pretty print of your mail items.

Support for personal organiser printing was added into the last released version. There are numerous configuration options to allow you to adjust the way mp generates its output.
