## tex macros and lilypond-book

 From: Atte André Jensen Subject: tex macros and lilypond-book Date: Thu, 22 May 2003 14:37:28 +0200

I'd like to define a macro for snippets of music
examples in LaTeX so instead of writing:

\begin{figure}[h]
\caption{\emph{\small{Caption}}}
\label{label}
\begin{center}
\begin[notime,smallverbatim,singleline]{lilypond}
\clef bass
c d e f g a b
\end{lilypond}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

I could write

\my_lily_example_macro{
\clef bass
c d e f g a b
}

I guess I don't have to mention that lilypond-book naturally
fails to work when using macros like this, since it simply processes
everything between \begin{lilypond} and \end{lilypond} leaving
everything else untouched. And the \begin{lilypond} and \end{lilypond}
are only to be found in the macrodefinition, so nothing happens...

Is it possible to expand user-defined macros before running
lilypond-book or how can I solve the problem?
