Hi,

I'd like to know if it is possible to use Hershey vector fonts to create very primitive musical notation. If I can hang some whole notes on these lines

X11()
plot(0,0, xlim=c(0,10), ylim=c(0,10))
# Staves:
for (i in c(seq(from=2,to=2.8,by=0.2),seq(from=4,to=4.8,by=0.2))) {

        abline(h=i)
}

it is enough.

Best wishes,

P.S.
By the way, right now the demo(Hershey) seems not to work in OSX version R 2.4.1. ... I get a message

> i <- i + 1

Error in deparse(ei, control = c("showAttributes", "useSource")) :

        invalid multibyte string
