5.4.2 Documentation files

All manuals live in ‘Documentation/’.

In particular, there are four user manuals, their respective master source files are ‘learning.tely’ (LM, Learning Manual), ‘notation.tely’ (NR, Notation Reference), ‘music-glossary.tely’ (MG, Music Glossary), and ‘lilypond-program’ (AU). Each chapter is written in a separate file, ending in ‘.itely’ for files containing lilypond code, and ‘.itexi’ for files without lilypond code, located in a subdirectory associated to the manual (‘learning/’ for ‘learning.tely’, and so on); list the subdirectory of each manual to determine the filename of the specific chapter you wish to modify.

Developer manuals live in ‘Documentation/’ too. Currently there is only one: the Contributor’s Guide ‘contrib-guide.texi’ you are reading.

Snippet files are part of documentation, and the Snippet List (SL) lives in ‘Documentation/’ just like the manuals. For information about how to modify the snippet files and SL, see LSR work.
