-beep: beep does exactly what you would expect: it beeps.
+# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
+# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description. Line
+# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|'
+# on the right side marks the last column you can put a character in. You must
+# make exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also
+# customary to leave one space after the ':'.
+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.
