[OBSOLETE] Adding a QR code

This snippet lets you draw a QR-code, for example to provide a link to the composer’s, or the music editor’s website.

Actually encoding the URL into a QR-code is not done here (this just draws the QR-code from a grid of "black" or "white" values), but see the code for a short Python snippet you can use to avoid having to fill for each small square if it’s black or white.

This snippet is obsolete starting from LilyPond 2.25.3, which adds a \qr-code markup command that takes a URL directly instead of a grid of "black" and "white" values. It is used like \markup \qr-code #10 "https://lilypond.org".

A string representation of the QR code.  0 means white, 1 means black.
You can generate this automatically using Python and the pyqrcode module
("pip install pyqrcode").  Use this line of code in a Python prompt:

>>> import pyqrcode; print(pyqrcode.create("https://lilypond.org").text(quiet_zone=0))
