Command line syntax: metronom
The METRONOM menu looks like this:
BLIP TICK freq = 60
The words "BLIP" and "TICK" appear if the metronome is set to make a
blip or a tick, respectively. The frequency displayed is the current
frequency, in beats per minute.
Pressing S will allow you to set the frequency by pressing a key four
times in time. METRONOM will time your keystrokes, and set the frequency
to the average frequency of your keystrokes.
Pressing (E) will allow you to enter the frequency as a number, in
beats per minute.
Pressing (B) will toggle the BLIP option.
Pressing (T) will toggle the TICK option.
Pressing (G) will start the metronom, creating a TICK and/or BLIP.
Pressing (Q) will quit.
Let me know if you think it would be worthwhile to let the frequency
be adjusted up or down via a joystick, or preprogrammed for "60 beats per
minute for 40 beats, then slowing to 40 beats per minute over 12 beats,
