Multiple repeats

Hello all, my name is Pete Dunk, I live in Kent and I'm a new poster here although I've been using abc for some years. I'm working on an old manuscript (Village Music Project) and I need to reproduce the old fashioned 'play 4 times' symbol which uses a dot in each of the spaces of the stave instead of the usual two generated by |:

Can this be done in abc? Thanks in anticipation!

Edited to disable smileys!

Hi Peter,

One solution is to add the line


in the header and then define


in the body.

That will get the right playback, but unfortunately will not match the old "four dot" notation method.
