Morse Talk

Morse Talk is a Python library which deals with Morse code

Installation

Using pip

pip install morse-talk

Development version

git clone https://github.com/OrkoHunter/morse-talk.git
cd morse-talk/
python setup.py install

Examples

>>> 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_type='binary')
'101110001011101010001011101110100010101010001011100000001011101000101110001110100011101110100010001011101000000010101010111000101010101000000011101011100011101000111011101110001110101110100011101011100010001110101000000011101010001110111011100010111011100011101'

Decoding a code encoded in morse

>>> code = '-...   ---   --   -...       -..-       .--.   --'
>>> mtalk.decode(code)
'BOMB X PM'

Decoding a binary pattern

>>> s_bin = mtalk.encode('Alpha Ranger 45 knocked down', encoding_type='binary')
>>> mtalk.decode(s_bin, encoding_type='binary')
'ALPHA RANGER 45 KNOCKED DOWN'

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

Graphical User Interface

GUI function provides a graphical user interface to the user.

Features

  • The GUI provides entry fields for input and the corresponding output is presented is given dynamically in the output fields.
  • The output in the output fields can be copied from there and can be used at other places.

GUI window

You can’t perform that action at this time.
