@darius has anyone attempted to make ascii art using the E's to form other letters yet
or has that happened and they used it to form yet another letter E instead
@darius did you specifically choose E as the only valid letter to make sure that all the transfems flock to your instance, or is it a coincidence that it is E out of all letters? xD
@meena in retrospect, tr would work better in this case. My initial work used just `morse` rather than `morse -s` so I needed sed to transform di/dit/dah and didn't back-modify it when I switched to using -s.
meena@76ix ~> echo 'Dolphins are cute' | morse -s | tr -- '-.' 'Ee' | fmt -999
Eee EEE eEee eEEe eeee ee Ee eee
eE eEe e
EeEe eeE E e
what's that trailing 'eeeEeE' ?
echo -n doesn't get rid of it either, just moves it a line up
@meena Interesting. I don't get that with morse(6) on my FreeBSD box, but I do with Debian & OpenBSD. Looking at the source
it appears to be "SK", the "silent key", indicating the end-of-transmission.
eEEEEeeE eEEeeEeE eEEEeeEE eeEeeeee eEEEeEEe eEEeeEeE eEEEeeEe eEEEEeeE eeEeeeee eEEeeEEE eEEeEEEE eEEeEEEE eEEeeEee
