CW-Decoder and Coder for Linux Console Terminals

This version is a pure terminal version of a morse decoder and coder for linux. It reads the audio sound from the sound card and prints the decoded text in the terminal. In transmit mode it sends the morse signs via the line out jack or via the RTS pin of an RS232 interface. Calling the program without any parameters lists some options.

The decoder estimates the morse speed and synchronizes to it.

The decoder uses the programs arecord and aplay which are in the usual distributions. But it does not use any special library or graphics, not even X. Just unpack the tar-file and compile the program with a C compiler. With gcc and make installed you can use the Makefile.
