MORSE(6)                       BSD Games Manual                       MORSE(6)

NAME
     morse -- reformat input as morse code

SYNOPSIS
     morse [-d | -s] [string ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The morse command reads the given input and reformats it in the form of
     morse code.  Acceptable input are command line arguments or the standard
     input.

     The options are as follows:

     -d      Decode dot-dash morse (as generated by the -s option) back into
             text.  A lowercase 'x' is printed for undecipherable input; oth-
             erwise, text is returned uppercase.  If the morse to be trans-
             lated is given on the command line, it should be preceded by '--'
             to keep it from being mistaken for options.

     -s      Produce dots and dashes rather than words.
