the whole linux midi port stuff is a disgrace. even when i manage to  
open a port on linux then the cursor starts spinning.  i dont know  
what to do about it, this is several layers beneath my software.

dont use shared linking , just use the .a linking.  if there is a .so  
lying around then the linker wont use the .a version even thouth i  
tell it to. i dontk know what to do about this.
someone added logic to my premake.lua for specifying /usr/lib  
installation  prefix but i guess it doesnt work.

  the whole score appears in several music theory books. i think it is  
less than a page total. you might look in the last few chapters of  
"Tonal Harmony: With an Introduction To Twentiety Centry Music" by  
Stefan Kostka and Dorothy Payne, it might be there.
