Morse Code

Originally created for Samuel Morse's electric telegraph in the mid-1830s, morse code is a method for transmitting information using standardised sequences of "dots" and "dashes" to represent letters, numerals, punctuation and special characters. Morse code can be used for sound signaling (radio, sound and whistle) and visual signaling (lights and flags).

To decode Morse Code as it's received you can use a graphical representation of a dichotomic search table. The graph branches left for each dot and right for each dash until the character representation is exhausted.
