Rein, PA0R did a great job of making TLF for the Linux console - TLF stands for The Left Foot.
TLF has a quick command when loading that you might not see. It tries to log on to a DX cluster - the log in is your amateur radio call sign. TLF flashes the comment - to exit and return to TLF press : (colon).
To exit TLF, just use control-c - there might be another command, but I use this.
The documentation is on the web but here is the sample:
ebook2cw -w 40 -c chapter -o book- book.txt
That starts ebook2cw reading the ebook file book.txt and tells it to
output a mp3 file at 40 wpm (-w 40), separates it by chapter and puts in the word "Chapter N" where N is the chapter number, and the output file is book-
You put a hyphen after the file name so that you can get chapter files of mp3 files.
I'll post further posts on this off list - but this is such a wonderful program, I want to let people know about it - it is rather difficult to find.
Other ham radio console programs are:
aldo - command line morse tutor - supports koch and standard teaching methods
The Debian repos contain cwirc which downloads and configures Xchat and cwirc so you can use the irc.freenode.org #cw room and hear morse and send it.
You can find more by using
