Comment #2 on issue 2558 by address@hidden: Documentation suggestion:
Including LilyPond files
I think this has to be rethought a little bit (right now I don't have an
opportunity to really sort this out, so I'll just drop a few hints to be
picked up later):
The paragraph starting with
"Files which are to be included can also contain ..." gives the impression
that #(ly:set-option 'relative-includes #t)
is a decision to be made before compiling a score.
But in fact you can place the function at any place in the score, even
multiple times and switch back and forth between the two behaviours.
This may be extremely useful.
- If I have a general library
I will want to have relative-includes on
- But if I have normal include files (e.g. music definitions)
I will want to have relative-includes off
because these files reside in files relative to the main .ly file
With the possibility of switching behaviour I can have both at the same
- include a library (which has relative-includes set on) and
- afterwards include 'local' files
Or I can have include references to 'local' files in a 'general' library.
I think the relevant doc section should be changed quite fundamentally to
explain this function more thoroughly
