Is there a program for OS 9 that can import and export MusicXML?

Considering the earliest version of MusicXML appeared around 2004-2005 and OS9 was discontinued in 2001…

it would seem very unlikely.

Is there a program for OS 9 that can import and export another human readable file format for representing Western musical notation on OS 9?

Then I would be the first one to do this, right?

I read on www.music-notation.info/en/software/Lime.html that Lime for OS 9 can read MusicXML.

I tried the Windows version and it works.

Then I read on www.music-notation.info/en/software/BarFly.html that BarFly for OS 9 can read MusicXML.

I found this on archive.org. I'll try it when I'm home.

BarFly worked, but that's not Western music notation.

Igor Engraver worked, (I have a password,) but only with integers and it draws with jaggies.

Lime worked, but if you import what you've exported, then you don't get the original. Password needed, otherwise you have only a flute.

I looked into several MusicXML libraries with too much clutter and too little readability.

I can read music by the way.

REALbasic 5.5.5 can read and validate MusicXML 3.1 files. I tried it and it works. The documentation says that it can even apply a stylesheet to an XML file, but I didn't try that. I copied more than 800 MusicXML files. They were all Unicode and MusicXML 1.0. Only a few had Unicode characters and they could easily be converted to MacRoman using the Text Encoding Converter.

The Carbon API has a minimal XML reading support, but no validation.
