Thread: Morse-classic (Linux): a crude but effective Morse Trainer

I was playing with my Linux Mint installation and I found a very small program that runs in text mode only, called simply "morse" but also called morse-classic in other environments.
$ sudo apt-get install morse
Hasn't been updated for ages but it still works. It could probably be compiled for other operating systems.
It has a lot of options:
$ morse -r -s -w 20
Will just generate random letters and you have to type the right one. If you fail, it will beep and display the correct letter.
$ morse -s -T -d < Documents/k7qo_code_course/099.txt
This will feed the program from K7QO practice text files and again you will have to recognize the right word.
One can feed a bigger text file or a practice text file downloaded from the ARRL for example.
I'm sure there are gazillions of other options.
I'll be using this application alongside LCWO.

Cool! It might be worth noting that the underlying program that helps make LCWO work (ebook2cw) can also run on Linux. http://fkurz.net/ham/ebook2cw.html
There is a debian package for it in the repo. A GUI UI is also available. All useful tools.

I urge everybody to try it out. It might well run on Windows 10 with the Linux subsystem:
For example I'm currently running it like this:
$ morse -r -s -d -R 22 -C 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz.=1234'
This will generate random notes from all letters, numbers 1-4 plus "." and "=".
