interesting, but boring as hell... Who on earth uses Morse still? Prolly losers...
i would say over 99.9% of computers today use binary coding like morses
And exactly what makes it any worse than ASCII?
Actually i wouldnt be surprised if length of coding would follow freqvensies of english alphabets, and if that would be case it would be more compact than ASCII when message would be english text. But if this is case or not... i let somebody who still remembers morse to answer...
Morse is you friend, not watched independence day? its the _only_ form of signalling that can cover (without direct connection) long distance, and be transmitted as sound(beeps), light(torch.ship-ship), electricity(telegraph), vibrations(inmates banging on pipes) and its varient semaphore(flags)
Sometimes people amaze me, after all, without morse we may not have even got to rs232 etc
There are ambiguities in morse code. I remember a story I read years ago... a quick Google search found:
The possibilities for ambiguity in American Morse code led to some confusing and amusing messages, as when a bridge inspector's report was copied as "Found a lion under bridge 16..." (the intended message was "Foundation under bridge 16...").
