## Tempo mark (MM) range

 From: Palmer, Ralph Subject: Tempo mark (MM) range Date: Thu, 22 Mar 2007 16:36:44 -0400

Greetings -

I keep thinking I can survive on my own, but I keep having to come back
to you generous folks.

I'm running LilyPond 2.10.16 on Windows XP Pro SP2, and using ConTEXT as
my editor.

I'm trying to figure out how to specify a range of tempi, using
something that looks like the normal MM or tempo mark. Specifically, I'm
trying to get a quarter note, followed by an equals sign ("="), followed
by a range ("92-100"). I've tried the manual, the examples, the Tips and
Tricks, the Regression Tests, and the list archives. The following is
the closest I could come, but it's not working.

%%%%%%% begin snippet %%%%%%

\version "2.10.16"
\include "english.ly"

Test = {
\key d \minor
\time 2/2
%       \tempo 4=92

c''1^\markup {\small \note #"4" #"1" {" = 92 - 100"} }

}

\score {
\Test
}

%%%%%% end snippet %%%%

If I get rid of the markup, and uncomment the \tempo section, it works.
When I run it as is, the log reads:

# -*-compilation-*-

Processing `C:/Documents and Settings/rpalmer/My Documents/Ralph/Sheet
Music/LilyPond/Classical/Bach/Art of the Fugue/C_I/Test.ly'
Parsing...

I would appreciate any help I can get. I'm also thinking that some of my
problems may be shared by others, and maybe I should submit some to Tips
and Tricks (was that formerly the Snippet Repository?).

Thanks for your time and attention,

Ralph
