Well, I've only glanced at the reference given above, but it looks
as though it can quantise note lengths in two different ways.
The Record command handles input from a MIDI instrument with the
-q option. The Recode command processes information already in
files: its description calls note lengths that have been quantised
“rhythmically justified”.
