@midi_track2ascii(tab)

This function read a list of timestamped midi messages, as returned by @midi_read, and produces a tab where the seven previous commands are given in a human readable way, with the channel is uncoupled from the command name. This function can be used for debugging purposes.

For example, suppose that

       $t := @midi_read("bolero.mid")

returns the tab

Then

returns

      ]

The TAB[<<undef>>] is a tab with ony one element, <<undef>>. This corresponds to midi header associated with the file and the track. The seven channel related commands (see [@midiread]) are described with a tab whose first element is the command name (as a string), the second element is the channel number, etc. Cf. the description of teh parameters of a command at @midi_read.

The @midi_track2ascii is mainly used for printing partial information in a human readable format.
