Subject: RE: My Johnny was a Shoemaker - origins?
H is a fermata. It's been a "proposed" extension for quite some time, but the abc people seem unable to agree on a new set of standards, so it's implemented in some readers and not in others. I'd rather use it now than wait for a decision that may -at this rate- never be made. I abandoned the abc programs I used to use as they became obsolete, and now use the online facility at concertina.net, which does what I need. I only use abc for web stuff, really.
