CPAN LINK: Convert::Morse
CPAN ABSTRACT: Package to convert between ASCII text and MORSE alphabet.
Introduction:
This module caught my eye as yet another 'Cool Use For Perl', appealing to both the avid Perl Programmer and Amateur Radio Hobbyist inside me.
Functionality:
In a nutshell, Convert::Morse converts an ascii string to equivalent International Morse Code dots and dashs and visa-versa. In addition, the module contains a function to check and see if a particular ascii string "is morsable", convertable to a valid morse code string.
Demo Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Convert::Morse qw(as_ascii as_morse is_morsable); print as_ascii('.... . .-.. .-.. --- -- --- .-. ... .'),"\n"; # 'Hell +o Morse' print as_morse('Perl?'),"\n"; # '.--. . .-. .-.. ..--.. +' print "Yes!\n" if is_morsable('Hello Perl.'); # print "Yes!"
Bug(s) Found:
None immediately found with preliminary testing.
Module Author Noted Limitation:
Can not yet do Japanese code nor German Umlaute.

Final Thoughts:
With further tinkering I found this module to be quite useful in converting English text to valid dot-dash-spaces International Morse Code; indeed another Cool Use For Perl for both die-hard those who are both Die-Hard Perl Programmers and Radio Enthusiasts alike.
UPDATE:There is indeed only one International Morse Code recognized by International Treaty that does not include japanese or umlaute character sets; Thanks to theorbtwo for pointing that out.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
