I have worked with John Lynch to produce a Linux executable of abc2xml, his tool for converting music in ABC format to MusicXML. John is rather busy at the moment, and not replying to emails, so I'm making the Linux executable available myself.

The stripped binary is 2.2MB. It contains the ANTLR library version 2.7.2. It is dynamically linked against which on my Debian Linux machine is contained in the libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 package.

Download the binary.

Please note: I no longer have access to the source code of abc2xml or the xml2abc transform. Neither do I have a working email address for John Lynch. Sorry.
