It sounds like you might have done something like this. In a file
you have

    \include ""

and in the file you have

    \include ""

So, when you run Lilypond on, it finds the \include command, and
immediately goes to read While it's doing this, it finds that
\include command, and immediately goes to read While it's doing
that, it sees the first \include again, goes to read, and so on.
Lilypond is in an infinite loop because that's exactly what you told it
to do.

Guessing from your description, what you want to do is have the notes
that will appear in cues defined in a file called (for example)
"", then include this file from each part's file so you can use
the notes it defines in that part's cues and in the part itself.

"Follow the enemy and try to prevent  the enemy carrying away the guns."
On 25th Oct 1854, Lord Raglan, on a hill, can see one set of guns;  Lord
Lucan, down in the valley,  sees a different, better defended,  set, and
leads the Light Brigade in its fateful charge.
