MORSE by Jonathan Siemasko

http://www.schemawound.com/

Function to take a string and convert it to morse code.

Handles a-z, A-Z and 0-9

Parameters allow you to adjust the space between letters and words

These parameters default to international morse code as shown on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morse_code

NOTE: wordSpace must be equal to or greater than letterSpace.

Created to assist my work on DISQUIET JUNTO PROJECT 0050: -…….–.-..-…-

Ah but hopefully when I am done with my track you will be able to "remix" it just by changing the phrase :)

I think AdC made a Quark for Morse stuff, I think, can't remember very well. ;)

Schemawound user 14 Dec'12 18:59

I tend to spend a lot of time accidently building stuff that has already been built :)

rukano user 16 Dec'12 05:18

I know that feel, bro. Same here... ;)
