MAKECSD(1)			  The Canonical Csound Reference		       MAKECSD(1)

       makecsd - Creates a CSD file from the specified input files. .

       Creates a CSD file from the specified input files. The first input file that has a .orc
       extension (case is not significant) is put to the <CsInstruments> section, and the first
       input file that has a .sco extension becomes <CsScore>. Any remaining files are Base64
       encoded and added as <CsFileB> tags. An empty <CsOptions> section is always added.

       Some text filtering is performed on the orchestra and score file:

       o   newlines are converted to the native format of the system on which makecsd is being

       o   blank lines are removed from the beginning and end of files.

       o   any trailing whitespace is removed from the end of lines.

       o   optionally, tabs can be expanded to spaces with an user specified tabstop size.

	   makecsd [OPTIONS ... ] infile1 [ infile2 [ ... ]]


       o   - t n = expand tabs to spaces using tabstop size n (default: disabled). This applies
	   only to the orchestra and score file.

       o   - w n = set Base64 line width to n (default: 72). Note: the orchestra and score are
	   not wrapped.

       o   - o fname = output file name (default: stdout)

	       makecsd -t 6 -w 78 -o file.csd file.mid file.orc file.sco sample.aif

       This creates a CSD from file.orc and file.sco (tabs are expanded to spaces assuming a
       tabstop size of 6 characters), and file.mid and sample.aif are added as <CsFileB> tags
       containing Base64 encoded data with a line width of 78 characters. The output file is
