morsegen - convert file to ASCII morse code SYNOPSIS
morsegen <file> DESCRIPTION
This program implements the International Morse Code Standard by converting ASCII text file into morse code ASCII notation. Morse code was created for the telegraph in the early 1840s. Morse code uses a standardized sequence of short and long elements to represent the letters, numerals, punctuation and special characters of a given message.

The following special translation have been used: ASCII Morse prosign ------------ ------------------ ' ' (space) Invitation to transmit Starting signal Wait End of work OPTIONS
