xml2pmx translates MusicXML files to input suitable for PMX processing

xml2pmx [-v | --version | -h | --help]

xml2pmx input.xml output.pmx [ p | d | v | s | l ] ..

The musixtex.lua script from version 0.23 supports xml2pmx as a pre-preprocessor for MusicXML files.

The meanings of the letter options are as follows:

p XML parser output; not recommended unless the terminal window process has enough storage

d information on "directions" (dynamical marks etc)

v distribution of voices over instruments and measures

s statistics of MusicXML tags like <note>, <measure> etc

l for extracting lyrics in a separate file

xml2pmx processes input in UTF-8 encoding only. MusicXML files in UTF-16 encoding should be converted using, for example, recode (in Unix-like systems) or by importing into an editor like notepad and saving in UTF-8 encoding.
