Here we will look at writing a script to test across a range of word lengths.
Eight words of five or less letters
# range_of_word_lengths.rb require 'cw' cw do comment "Eight words, five or less letters (18 WPM)" shuffle no_longer_than 5 word_count 8 wpm 18 end
Eight words ranging from 2 to 4 letters (15 WPM)
# range_of_word_lengths_2.rb require 'cw' cw do comment "8 words having size between 2 and 4 letters (15 WPM)" shuffle wpm 15 no_shorter_than 2 no_longer_than 4 number_of_words 8 end
Two words having 8 or more letters (test_letters)
Copying very long words is tricky since you don’t get the thinking time allowed by the inter-word spacing!
# range_of_word_lengths_3.rb require 'cw' cw do comment "2 words having at least 8 letters (15 WPM)" shuffle wpm 15 no_shorter_than 8 number_of_words 2 end
Important: You can quit any test by entering four “q” keystrokes in a row.
