1.2 Command-line usage
This section contains extra information about using LilyPond on the
command line. This may be desirable to pass extra options to the
program. In addition, there are certain extra ‘helper’ programs (such
midi2ly) which are only available on the command line.
By ‘command line’, we mean the command line in the operating system. Windows users might be more familiar with the terms ‘DOS shell’ or ‘command shell’. macOS users might be more familiar with the terms ‘terminal’ or ‘console’.
Describing how to use this part of an operating system is outside the scope of this manual; please consult other documentation on this topic if you are unfamiliar with the command line.
