Multiple measure rests can be indicated using the "multirest" statement. It is followed by the number of measures of rest. The number must be greater than 1, and no larger than 1000. There must not be any note or lyric information specified for a multirest measure. Examples:

multirest 15
1: 2c;4;;
1: 2.c;4r;
multirest 5

See also the -c command line option, and the restcombine parameter.

Normally, the number of measures of rest is printed, but it is possible to turn this off using the printmultnum parameter. An alternate notation can be specified using the restsymmult parameter.
