Under Linux try:

find . -name '*.ly' -exec convert-ly -e '{}' \;

Or, shorter, but doesn’t work by default with all shells (for example bash needs “shopt -s globstar” in the .bashrc):

convert-ly -e **/*.ly

Is there a syntax for running convert-ly on a directory without having to cd

        convert-ly -e *.ly

There doesn’t seem to be a recursive option.  Since I’ve got .ly files in 158 
different directories it’d be really nice to be able to batch update them with 
something like:

      convert-ly -e -r *.ly

instead of having to cd in to 158 directories by hand.  Maybe there is good 
reason for convert-ly not having this capability.
