CWGEN(1)		    General Commands Manual		      CWGEN(1)

NAME
       cwgen - generate	groups of random characters for	Morse code practice

SYNOPSIS
       cwgen   [-g --groups=groups]   [-n --groupsize=groupsize]  [-n --group-
       size=group_min-group_max]    [-r	--repeat=repeat]    [-x	--limit=limit]
       [-c --charset=charset]  [-h --help] [-V --version]

       cwgen  installed	 on  GNU/Linux systems understands both	short form and
       long form command line options.	cwgen  installed  on  other  operating
       systems may understand only the short form options.

       Options	may  be	 predefined in the environment variable	CWGEN_OPTIONS.
       If defined, these options are used first;  command  line	 options  take
       precedence.

DESCRIPTION
       cwgen  provides a simple	method to generate groups of random characters
       for use as input	into cw.  Command line options control the group size,
       number  of  groups,  and	character set from which the random characters
       are selected.

   COMMAND LINE	OPTIONS
       cwgen understands the following command line options.   The  long  form
       options may not be available in non-LINUX versions.

       -g, --groups
	      Specifies	the number of groups of	random characters to generate.
	      The default value	is 128.

       -n, --groupsize
	      Specifies	either the number of random characters in each	group,
	      if  a single value is given, or a	range for the number of	random
	      characters in each group if a dash-separated pair	of  values  is
	      given.   If  a range is given, cwgen generates groups sized ran-
	      domly between 'group_min'	and 'group_max'.  The default value is
	      5.

       -r, --repeat
	      Specifies	the number of times to repeat each group.  The default
	      value is 0, indicating that each group is	printed	just once.

       -x, --limit
	      Specifies	an upper limit on the number  of  characters  printed.
	      This option is useful when using random group sizes, to ensure a
	      given amount of practice text.  The default value	is 0, indicat-
	      ing no upper limit on the	number of characters printed.

       -c, --charset
	      Defines  the  character set from which the random	characters are
	      selected.	  The	default	  value	  is   'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTU-
	      VWXYZ0123456789'.

EXAMPLES
       Generate	 20 groups of 10 characters from the set EISH5,	and sound them
       as Morse	code.  Both  short-form	 and  long-form	 option	 examples  are
       shown:

	      cwgen -g 20 -n 10	-c "EISH5" | cw	-w 25 -t 850

	      cwgen --groups=20	--groupsize=10 --charset="EISH5" | cw --wpm=25
	      --tone=850
