NAME
       text2tt - Convert text to Touch Tone representation



SYNOPSIS
       text2tt text ...

DESCRIPTION
       text2tt  converts text to the Touch Tone sequence used by APRStt.
       There are two types of encoding:

              Multi-Press - Used for comments.

                     Letters are represented by one or more presses of the
                     same key depending on their order listed on the button.
                     e.g.  Press 5 key once for J, twice for K, thrice for L.

                     To specify a digit use the number of letters listed on
                     the button plus one.  e.g.  Press 5 key four times to get
                     digit 5.  When two characters in a row use the same key,
                     use the "A" key as a separator.

              Two-Key - Used for callsigns.

                     Digits are represented by a single key press.

                     Letters (or space) are represented by the corresponding
                     key followed by A, B, C, or D depending on the order of
                     the letter in the order listed.

       This application will convert using both methods.
