+beep: beep does exactly what you would expect: it beeps.
+beep: Unlike printf("\a"), beep allows you to control pitch, duration, and
+beep: repetitions. Its job is to live inside shell/perl scripts and allow more
+beep: granularity than one would otherwise have. It is controlled completely
+beep: through command line options. It's not supposed to be complex, and it
+beep: isn't - but it makes system monitoring (or whatever else it gets hacked
+beep: onto) that much more informative.
+beep: You may need to set beep executable suid.
