     bcd, ppt, morse - reformat input as punch cards, paper tape or morse code

     bcd [string ...]
     ppt [-d [-b] | string ...]
     morse [-d | -s] [string ...]

     The bcd, ppt, and morse commands read the given input and reformat it in
     the form of punched cards, paper tape, or morse code, respectively.
     Acceptable input are command line arguments or the standard input.

     Available options for ppt:

     -d [-b]
	     The -d option for ppt decodes paper tape on the standard input
	     back to ASCII.  Unprintable characters are visually encoded with
	     vis(3) unless the -b flag (binary) is also specified.  A
	     lowercase `x' is printed for undecipherable input lines.

     Available options for morse:

     -d	     The -d option for morse decodes dot-dash morse (as generated by
	     using the -s option) back into text.  A lowercase `x' is printed
	     for undecipherable input; otherwise, text is returned uppercase.
	     If the morse to be translated is given on the command line, it
	     should be preceded by `--' to keep it from being mistaken for

     -s	     The -s option for morse produces dots and dashes rather than
