Attributes

bezier, bulge, curvedir, lform, lsegs, lwidth

bezier(optional)Records the placement of Bezier control points as a series of pairs of space-separated
values; e.g., 19 45 -32 118.
One or more values, each consisting of a sequence of decimal and decimal sub-values.

bulge(optional)Describes a curve as one or more pairs of values with respect to an imaginary line
connecting the starting and ending points of the curve. The first value captures a
distance to the left (positive value) or right (negative value) of the line, expressed
in
virtual units. The second value of each pair represents a point along the line, expressed
as a percentage of the line’s length. N.B. An MEI virtual unit (vu) is half the distance
between adjacent staff lines where the interline space is measured from the middle
of a
staff line.
One or more of decimal.

curvedir(optional)Describes a curve with a generic term indicating the direction of curvature.
Allowed values are:
"above" *(Upward curve.)*, "below" *(Downward curve.)*, "mixed" *(A "meandering" curve, both above and below the items it pertains to.)*

lsegs(optional)Describes the number of segments into which a dashed or dotted line may be divided,
or
the number of "peaks" of a wavy line; a pair of space-separated values (minimum and
maximum, respectively) provides a range between which a rendering system-supplied
value
may fall, while a single value indicates a fixed amount of space; that is, the minimum
and
maximum values are equal.
One or two values of datatype
a positive integer no smaller than 2, separated by a space.

(MEI.shared) Attributes that describe curvature.

curvedir(optional)Describes a curve with a generic term indicating the direction of curvature.
Allowed values are:
"above" *(Upward curve.)*, "below" *(Downward curve.)*, "mixed" *(A "meandering" curve, both above and below the items it pertains to.)*

(MEI.shared) Attributes that record the basic visual rendition of lines.

lform(optional)Describes the style of a line.
Value conforms to data.LINEFORM.

lwidth(optional)Width of a line.
Value conforms to data.LINEWIDTH.

lsegs(optional)Describes the number of segments into which a dashed or dotted line may be divided,
or
the number of "peaks" of a wavy line; a pair of space-separated values (minimum and
maximum, respectively) provides a range between which a rendering system-supplied
value
may fall, while a single value indicates a fixed amount of space; that is, the minimum
and
maximum values are equal.
One or two values of datatype
a positive integer no smaller than 2, separated by a space.

Component declarations that are shared between two or more modules.

lform(optional)Describes the style of a line.
Value conforms to data.LINEFORM.

lwidth(optional)Width of a line.
Value conforms to data.LINEWIDTH.
