Basically, you write a plain text file which contains the music, then
you run lilypond on this file which produces a TeX file, which is in
turn processed to a DVI file (these steps are combined and simplified
by the ly2dvi script which you should normally call instead of
lilypond).  This file can then be converted to various output formats
like PostScript or PDF.  For example input files look into the
directory input/mutopia; the tutorial is available in `info' format:

  info lilypond

A longer time ago there has been some interest to develop a backend
for Braille output but I don't know whether there has been progress.
