I am looking for help on a very simple program that I am writing. It consists of many if then statements, the result of which end in a letter representing a musical note (A, B, Bb, C, C#, D, D#, etc.) It is a program that transposes guitat tablature to alto saxophone music. I need a way to take the result of my if then statements and turn them from a letter representing a musical note into an actual musical note printed onto a blank music paper program. If anyone could help me, it would be greatly appreciated.

* You can output Lillypond markup and have it produce music notation.

Thank you so much. that is exactly what I needed. I have another question. your help would be greatly appreciated. I wrote my program using an editor I downloaded from download.com and have since formatted my computer and no longer have the editor but I still have the program and I can view it in notepad but it won't open in qbasic. I was wondering if you would be so kind to look at it and tell me what I need to change in order to get it to run in qbasic and what alteration I need to make in order to make the output produced by my program into lilypond- compatible input so that I can run my program and end up with a notepad file that can be opened in lilypond. That way I would be able to take any guitar tablature and turn it into sheet music for my alto saxophone and then I would be able to play any song in the world. Maybe I could even alter it to transpose to different instruments so that other people could do the same thing.
