Generating blank staff paper

It is possible to use Mup to generate blank music staff paper. You simply use an input file that contains measure spaces, each ending with an invisbar. You can control whether you want clefs, time signatures, braces, etc., and can control the spacing of staffs using the scoresep parameter. Here is a simple input that will generate a page with 8 completely blank staffs.

score
	scoresep=9,100		// spread staffs out nicely
	stafflines=5n		// don't print any clefs
	label=""		// make sure left edges line up both on first
	label2=""		//    and on subsequent lines
	topmargin=1		// allow extra margin to write in header/footer
	bottommargin=1
	time=4/4n		// don't print any time signature
music

define SCORE
	1: ms;
	invisbar		// no bar line at the end of the staff
@

define SCORE_NEWSCORE
	SCORE
	newscore
@

// print 8 staffs, with newscore between each
