The Convert object manages conversions between different datatypes for the humdrum-js library. It is inherited by HumdrumToken, HumdrumLine, and HumdrumBase for internal use in those objects. If you want to use the Convert functions directly, there are two primary methods:
The first method is to call the prototype functions of Convert directly, such as:
The second method is to create a Convert object and then use its prototype functions directly through that object:
var converter = new Convert(); converter.csvToTsv('a,b,c,d')
An alternative third method is to call the prototype functions indirectly through an object that inherits from Convert:
var line = new HumdrumLine(); line.csvToTsv('a,b,c,d')
However, this last way of accessing the functions is dangerous, since it is possible that the objects inheriting from Convert may re-define the function names for their own purposes, thus shadowing the original Convert prototypes.
These functions are helper functions for the main set of functions. In general they will not be interesting to use in isolation.
