I’ve found your response, and I’ve updated my list subscription to my new email.
My reason for wanting this is that I need to generate several types of output based on some other settings in my input file. For example, I need PDF output for print, and PNG output in a couple different resolutions for projection on a screen. This is for use in a church.
One thought I had was to spawn another LilyPond so that I could specify command line options based on the settings in my input file. I haven’t been able to get this to work so far, for reasons I don’t understand. I tried this using (system "lilypond -fpng file.ly"). I also tried Guile’s system*, but got an unbind error. I’m using 2.22.2.
Thank you for your response, and apologies for missing it initially.

I'm afraid this can't be done without dirty tricks. Output formats are really tied to the command line. However, I think this might be an XY question. Could you elaborate on why you want to do this?
