in thread Bolero (just music)

I use Linux.
This script is very simple, so it's possible to test every part quickly.
  1. Check about beep work in shell: echo -e '\a'
  2. Check about dev work in shell: echo -e '\a' >/dev/beep
  3. Check about Time::HiRes work: comment out open BEEP... and select BEEP... and replace "\a" to just "a"
WBR, Alex.

    Do you use RedHat? I am running Debian with some help... I tried the script and your tests and installed Time::HiRes, but I still got run-time errors. Then SO came up with an interesting fact: There's no /dev/beep included in the standard kernal. I'd made a file called /dev/beep that bolero printed to, but no device. erg. There is a program called beep that might be useful for this script though. It's at this website . Can't say I've looked too deeply at it, though.
