    Since your suggestion is system-specific, Krak, it's much better to use caround5h's standard suggestion.

    While we're being system specific....
    Code:
    #include<windows.h>
    
    int main()
    {
        MessageBeep(MB_ICONEXCLAMATION);
        return 0;
    }
    gg

    besides cout<<char(7); is much better looking

    {
    invoke beep
