typespeed - Test your typing speed, and get your fingers’ CPS
Typespeed gives your fingers’ cps (total and correct), typoratio and
some points to compare with your friends.
Typespeed’s idea is ripped from ztspeed (a dos game made by Zorlim).
Idea of the game should be clear to anyone, just type and type it fast,
or be a lewser.
Notice: the speed of words going across the screen has been changed in
version 0.4.0. Scores are not comparable with older versions now. See
the README file for more detailed information.
Turns off the ncurses colors, it can be a more clear way to play
the game in some situations.
This will enable the cheat, which wraps words instantly when
they are written correctly. You don’t need to press space/enter.
It is another question if this "cheat" actually helps..
Training mode (where nm is speed number). It slows the game
down. Speed number tells how often words are moved, normally
always. So that with number "2", words move every second time in
the loop and with "4" they move only every fourth time. You
can’t obviously get your name in the high score list by using
Start typespeed in server mode. Typespeed will wait for other
player to connect.
Start typespeed in client mode (where addr is network address of
server) Typespeed will try to connect to the given address and
start network play.
Tells what tcp/ip port will typespeed be using in the network
play. The default port is 6025.
Reset/Make scorefiles for the wordfiles found in the dir defined
in the configs or if no config files exist, then in the current
dir. Doesn’t start typespeed.
--help Little explaining of the parameters
/etc/typespeedrc Config file
$HOME/.typespeed.rc Personal config file. Overrides the system config
The config file consists of only one line, which defines the directory
of typespeed’s data files. It is usually /usr/local/lib/typespeed/.
