    Cool Pc-speaker

    How can I make PC-speaker to produced different sounds (beeping).

    Hi,
    You could use " \a" which is the bell.
    Example
    Code:
        printf("\n \a ERROR Invalid Input");
        /*to prompt user input is invalid*/
    hoping to be certified (programming in c)
    here's the news - I'm officially certified.

    but thanx anyway.

    P.S.

    Yet another compiler-dependent thing... which one are you using?

    In Borland C, use the sound(int freq) function in dos.h to play a sound out through the PC speaker.

    I don't think you can change the alarm tone in most compilers.
