These are an assortment of tools, created by NWC2 users, for working
with the NWC2 User Tools interface. Several roughly duplicate utilities
which worked with midi, and are found in Helpful Files, however,
with the NWC2 user tool interface, exporting and importing to and from midi is not necessary.
Whilst these tools could be written as standalone
executables, we have standardised on PHP script so that users can verify
the integrity and safety of using each script. We strongly urge each user
to inspect any script downloaded from this page to satisfy themselves that
it does nothing untoward. Whilst we take due care to ensure that there are
no nasties, all usage of these scripts is at the user's own risk. We
cannot provide a guarantee of fitness for purpose.

Firstly, make sure that you have installed the latest version of Noteworthy Software's
NWC2 User Tool Starter Kit.
Note that from version 1.11, the Starter Kit automatically installs Compound Autobeam, Global Modification, Parts, Ranges, and Transpose Chords. Each version in that distribution is dated about December 2004, and there may be more recent versions on this page.
Then, to install any of these scripts:
- Simply right click and "Save Target..." to your Scripts folder. This is most likely
C:\Program Files\Noteworthy Composer 2\Scripts
Note that you will have to rename the file to its .php
extension. We have to name the files .txt, otherwise the web
server here tries to execute them.
- You may wish to inspect the script to satisfy yourself that it is
not going to do anything malicious. I'm afraid we can't guarantee that
the code will look pretty!
- In NWC2, choose Tools | User Tools (shortcut is Alt-F8) and create a
- Give it a name appropriate to the tool
- For the command, use the browse button and select the php file that
you have just downloaded. This will automatically create the appropriate
php command line. Note that further parameters may be required. These
are detailed with each php script below, and should be added to the end
of the command used to invoke the tool. Also most scripts will respond
to a single parameter of "help" with details of parameter usage.
