                *** Important Note About This Port ***
           I ported this to test Salass00's port of libAO.
libAO works perfectly, and the morse sound is outputted loud and clear.
 I didn't spend any time testing the app itself, so I don't know if it
   works as it should. But atleast now we know that libAO works, and
     future ports of ahem UADE for example should be possible. ;)
              Someone please port the latest UADE! /Spot
                *** Important Note About This Port ***




When you start Aldo you will see the Main Menu:

*************************************
* Aldo Main Menu      * 
*  1: Blocks method    *
*  2: Koch method      *
*  3: Read from file   *
*  4: Callsigns        *
*  5: Setup            *
*  6: Exit             *
*                                   *
* Your choice:                *
*************************************

First of all you must set up Aldo for your PC,
so select 5.

Now you will see the Setup Menu:

*********************************
*   Setup Menu   *
* 1: Keyer Setup  *
* 2: Blocks method Setup *
* 3: Koch method Setup *
* 4: Qrz exercise Setup *
* 5: Default Settings *
* 6: Return to Main Menu *
*********************************

Now you have to create the configuration file ~/.aldorc
So select 5.

Other choices in the Setup Menu:

*********************************
*   Setup Menu   *
* 1: Keyer Setup  *
* 2: Blocks method Setup *
* 3: Koch method Setup *
* 4: Qrz exercise Setup *
* 5: Default Settings *
* 6: Return to Main Menu *
*********************************

By selecting 1 you can set up:

1) Pause before the start of keying, in seconds (default: 2)
2) Pause between two letters in a word (default: 3)
3) Pause between two words (default: 7)
4) Keying speed in wpm
5) Length of dot (default: 1)
6) Length of dash (default: 3)
7) Frequency of buzzer in Hz (default: 900)

By selecting 2 you can set up training with the Blocks method exercise:

1) Length of words, in characters (default: 5)
2) Number of words (default: 3)
3) Character set (default: 1 - i.e. "e,i,s,h,t,m,o")

By selecting 3 you can set up the keying speed for the Koch method.

By selecting 4 you can set up the Callsign exercise.
Specify your preferred callsign format, using "wildcards":.

() = random letter
# = random number
? = optional letter
$ = optional number

A fixed letter or a fixed number, (such as "i" or "8" in the examples
below), is used literally. 

For example:

iz8()()() is a format for callsigns like iz8bqi iz8eqd iz8tpz etc..
iz#m()() gives iz0muv iz9mer iz8mrd etc..
iz#()()() gives iz2qwe iz1ert etc..
i?8()()() gives i8mro iz8eqd it8aa ih8epz etc..
i?#()()() gives imro izqvo iz8mrt etc..
kc#()()() gives kc0mnn kc1hjy kc9yup

NOTE: Callsign formats must be lower case: e.g. iz#m()(), not IZ#M()()

Coming back to the Main Menu:

*************************************
*       Aldo Main Menu              * 
*  1: Blocks method    *
*  2: Koch method      *
*  3: Read from file   *
*  4: Callsigns        *
*  5: Setup            *
*  6: Exit             *
*                                   *
* Your choice:                *
*************************************

Select 1 to train by the Blocks Method
Select 2 to train by the Koch Method
Select 3 for Aldo to read a text file from disk
Select 4 to train by using random callsigns

Now listen to your speakers.
Identify the morse characters and write them on a sheet of paper.
If you are unsure, use an underscore ( _ ) to hold the place of missed letters.

When the exercise has finished you should enter the characters at the keyboard.
Entering the characters at the keyboard, please replace underscore ( _ ) with
().
ALDO will then compare your results with the correct version.

If you have suggestions for additional features, please send me an email
to denever()users.sf.net or subscribe

Ciao ciao,
Giuseppe Martino IZ8EQD.
