SD Card Support For M5Stack Morse Tutor

Some Morse Tutor projects are adding SD card support (the text file on the SD Card is sent via Morse Code).

I went to gutenberg.org and loaded a large Sherlock Holmes book onto a Samsung 32 GB EVO Plus MicroSDHC UHS-1 Card. Formatted with PC/MAC app SDFORMATTER for Type1 SDHC FAT32

Inserted the card into the M5Stack SD card socket and had no trouble reading/writing it with this code:

#include <M5Stack.h>
 
//Micro SD / TF Card Test
/*
 M5Stack initializing...OK
Listing directory: /
  DIR : /.Spotlight-V100
  DIR : /.fseventsd
  FILE: /SherlockHolmes.txt  SIZE: 590492
  FILE: /._SherlockHolmes.txt  SIZE: 4096
  FILE: /hello.txt  SIZE: 11
Writing file: /hello.txt
File written
Reading file: /hello.txt
Read from file: Hello world from M5Stack !!
 */


void listDir(fs::FS &fs, const char * dirname, uint8_t levels){

    // Print blank line on screen
    M5.Lcd.printf(" \n  ");
    M5.Lcd.printf(" \n  ");
    
    Serial.printf("Listing directory: %s\n", dirname);
    M5.Lcd.printf("Listing directory: %s\n", dirname);

    File root = fs.open(dirname);
    if(!root){
        Serial.println("Failed to open directory");
        M5.Lcd.println("Failed to open directory");
        return;
    }
    if(!root.isDirectory()){
        Serial.println("Not a directory");
        M5.Lcd.println("Not a directory");
        return;
    }

    File file = root.openNextFile();
    while(file){
        if(file.isDirectory()){
            Serial.print("  DIR : ");
            M5.Lcd.print("  DIR : ");
            Serial.println(file.name());
            M5.Lcd.println(file.name());
            if(levels){
                listDir(fs, file.name(), levels -1);
            }
        } else {

            M5.Lcd.println(file.size());
        }
        file = root.openNextFile();
    }
}

void readFile(fs::FS &fs, const char * path) {
    Serial.printf("Reading file: %s\n", path);
    M5.Lcd.printf("Reading file: %s\n", path);

    File file = fs.open(path);
    if(!file){
        Serial.println("Failed to open file for reading");
        M5.Lcd.println("Failed to open file for reading");
        return;
    }

    Serial.print("Read from file: ");
    M5.Lcd.print("Read from file: ");
    while(file.available()){
        int ch = file.read();
        Serial.write(ch);
        M5.Lcd.write(ch);
    }
}

void writeFile(fs::FS &fs, const char * path, const char * message){
    Serial.printf("Writing file: %s\n", path);
    M5.Lcd.printf("Writing file: %s\n", path);

    File file = fs.open(path, FILE_WRITE);
    if(!file){
        Serial.println("Failed to open file for writing");
        M5.Lcd.println("Failed to open file for writing");
        return;
    }
    if(file.print(message)){
        Serial.println("File written");
        M5.Lcd.println("File written");
    } else {
        Serial.println("Write failed");
        M5.Lcd.println("Write failed");
    }
}

// the setup routine runs once when M5Stack starts up
