       cwdaemon - morse daemon for the serial or parallel port


       cwdaemon [options] ...


       Cwdaemon  is  a  small  daemon  which  uses  the  pc  parallel or serial port and a simple
       transistor switch to output morse code to a transmitter from a text message sent to it via
       udp port 6789.


       -d <device> Use a different device for keying.

       -h Show summary of options.

       -n Do not fork and print debug information to stdout.

       -p <port> Use a different UDP port number (default = 6789).

       -P <priority> Set cwdaemon priority, -20 to 20 (default = 0).

       -s <speed> Set speed, value larger than 4 (default = 24).

       -t <time> Set PTT delay, value from 0 to 50 ms (default = 0).

       -v <volume> Set volume for soundcard output.

       -V Output version information and exit.

       -w <weight> Set weighting, value from -50 to 50 (default = 0).

       -x <sdevice> Set sound device to be used.


       Any  serial  device that supports getting and setting the modem control lines can be used.
       On Linux, ttyS0, ttyS1, etc. will work.  On FreeBSD these  devices  are  known  as  ttyd0,
       ttyd1,  etc.  On OpenBSD, these same devices are known as tty00, tty01, etc., but may vary
       with platform.

       For parallel ports on Linux try parport0 (default)  or  parport1,  and  on  FreeBSD,  ppi0
       (default),  ppi1,  etc.  OpenBSD does not support parallel port operation, and defaults to

       For completeness, a 'null' device is provided.  This device does exactly nothing  (no  rig
       keying, no ssb keying, etc.).


       Sdevice  should  be one of 'c' (console), 's' (soundcard), 'b' (both), or 'n' (none).  The
       default is console, which is the PC speaker.

       testing of cwdaemon.

       2.2 by Simon Baldwin, G0FRD.  FreeBSD support mostly done by Diane Bruce, VA3DB.   OpenBSD
       support by Jason L. Wright, AI4JW.
