An aide to Morse Code

Project description

Morse Talk

Morse Talk is a Python library which deals with `Morse
code <>`__


.. code:: python

>>> import morse_talk as mtalk

# Encoding in morse
>>> mtalk.encode('Alpha Ranger 45 departed')
'.- .-.. .--. .... .- .-. .- -. --. . .-. ....- .....
-.. . .--. .- .-. - . -..'

# Encoding using binary pattern
>>> mtalk.encode('Alpha Ranger 45 knocked down', encoding='binary')

# Decoding a code encoded in morse
>>> code = '-... --- -- -... -..- .--. --'
>>> mtalk.decode(code)
'bomb x pm'

Morse Code

Morse code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of
on-off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a
skilled listener or observer without special equipment. The
International Morse Code encodes the ISO basic Latin alphabet, some
extra Latin letters, the Arabic numerals and a small set of punctuation
and procedural signals as standardized sequences of short and long
signals called "dots" and "dashes", or "dits" and "dahs". Because many
non-English natural languages use more than the 26 Roman letters,
extensions to the Morse alphabet exist for those languages.

Morse Code table
International Morse code is composed of five elements:

- short mark, dot or "dit" (·) : "dot duration" is one time unit long
- longer mark, dash or "dah" (–) : three time units long
- inter-element gap between the dots and dashes within a character :
one dot duration or one unit long
- short gap (between letters) : three time units long
- medium gap (between words) : seven time units long
