Five Line SkinkFive Line Skink is a desktop application which is used to create music staff notation using the abc standard described at http://abc.sourceforge.net/Skink is available for the Macintosh, Windows and Linux platforms (early versions were also tested on Solaris), but requires that Java be installed - at least Java 1.4 for Skink version 1.x and Java 5 for Skink version 2.x. If you are running on a Macintosh, Java is installed for you.Wil Macaulaywil_dot_macaulay_at_gmail_dot_comhttp://celticmusic.ca Skink version 2.0j0 (public beta) 16 June 2009This version is still under construction - please send any feedback (positive or negative!) to wil_dot_macaulay_at_gmail_dot_com .

Major differences between Skink 2.0 and Skink 1.x include: Skink 2.0 supports multi-voice abc, as well as related features such as alto, tenor and bass clefs Skink 2.0 can invoke abcm2ps directly. Support for multiple open files in separate windows window menu support for abcm2ps format files preferences menu can be used to update abcm2ps path and format file sample format file (skink.fmt) to produce abcm2ps output similar to Skink output tested on Mac OSX 10.5.7 with Java 5, Windows XP with Java 6 and Ubuntu 9.04 with Sun Java 6Some other enhancements include: improvements to layout more consistent handling of the interaction between continuous layout mode and playback - in continuous mode, Skink will now only display the tune in which data is being entered, and will play that tune when play is invoked from the menu the abc file directory is now 'sticky' - Skink will remember the last directory from which abc files were opened after restart.Note that in this version there are a number of restrictions, some of which are documented here: Skink 2.0 requires Java 1.5 or better, and thus must run on Mac OS X 10.4.x or better In order for Skink to invoke abcm2ps, it must be installed separately, and must appear in the path. The pre-built abcm2ps that is available at http://abcplus.sourceforge.net/#abcm2ps
