abc is a language designed to notate tunes in an ascii format.

   ABC viewer for the Palm Pilot/Palm 3
ABC Viewer reads tunes in ABC format from the Memo Pad and displays the corresponding musical notation. It's currently still under development, but despite many missing features (and some bugs) it is quite usable. Please note, development is pretty much stalled at the moment due to my free time being taken over by other things. Sorry.
