To transpose a song down a whole step, say from F major to Eb major, the
syntax would be:

\transpose c bes (or however the language you are using signifies a Bb)

Be careful here, because both pitches are taken absolute, so being bes
in the same octave as c, this transposing has the effect of raising a
minor seventh up.


  \transpose d c


  \transpose c bes,

(note the comma), to transpose a whole step down.

Interesting, thank you for pointing that out.
