It is sometimes convenient to have the score in more than one file. This use is supported by the #include facility which is part of the macro system. A line containing the text
where the character : can be replaced by any suitable character. For most uses the double quote symbol will probably be the most convenient. The file name can include a full path.
This takes input from the named file until it ends, when input reverts to the previous input. There is currently a limit of 20 on the depth of included files and macros.
A suggested use of #include would be to define a set of macros which are part of the composer's style. It could also be used to provide repeated sections.
s #include :section1: ;; Repeat that s #include :section1:
Alternative methods of doing repeats, use the r statement, m statement, and n statement.
