$MORSE.HEL

From Rosetta Code

The   $MORSE.HEL   file is the HELp (documentation) file for the   $MORSE.REX   (REXX) program.

The   $MORSE   command is used to display the  Morse code  equivalent of text
(words or letters of the English (Latin) alphabet,  digits,  and some special
characters,  mostly punctuation).

(              indicates the start of the words (text) to be translated to Morse
               code.    Any leading, trailing, or extra blanks are removed.

words ...      are the words (or letters, digits, symbols) to be translated to
               code.  Any characters that can't be translated (i.e., have no
               Morse code equivalent) are left untranslated and are shown as is.
               Some characters are translated to their closest Morse code
               equivalent, i.e.,  all brackets and braces are translated to the
               Morse code parenthesis.

              Note that the American (or railroad) Morse code doesn't support
             some of the special (puntuation) characters.  In that case, the
             International Morse code is used.

SHOWcodes      shows (types) all known Morse characters and their Morse code
               equivalents  (one per line).   There are about 60 or so.
               The default is   NOSHOWcodes.

SPACEs   nnn   where   nnn    is the number of blanks to be inserted between the
               Morse code words.                         The default is 3.

BETWEENS nnn   where   nnn    is the number of blanks to be inserted between the
               dits and dahs of the Morse code.          The default is 0.

SOUNDs         causes sound to be generated for each morse "dit" or "dah".

NOSOUNDs       causes sound to be not generated.         The default is:  SOUND

SPREADs  nnn   where   nnn    is the number of blanks to be inserted between the
               Morse code "letters".                     The default is 1.

SLIce          causes the output to be split up into multiple lines,  one line
               per Morse code letter.                    The default is NOSLICE.

NOSLIce        doesn't split the output on letter boundries.

SPLit          causes the output to be split up into multiple lines,  one line

NOSPLit        doesn't split the output on word boundries.

INTERnational  sets the type of Morse code to the one used internationaly.
                                                    The default is INTERNATIONAL

AMERican       (same as RAILROAD)
USA            (same as RAILROAD)
RAILways       (same as RAILROAD)
RAILROADs      sets the type of Morse code to the one used by US railways of
               olde.

COLORs         shows the output in color.
               The default is:     (for CMS or DOS):      COLORS
                                   (for all others):    NOCOLORS

               The default TOPS is:   .C=green
               This options can be overridden by specifying  TOPS    (see below).

NOCOLORs       won't show the output in color.

LOGs           logs the answer to a log file.   The default is:   NOLOGS
               The name of the log file is one of the following:

                (DOS)   tmp\$MORSE.ANS    (if TMP  environmental var is defined)
