    Any function like beep(.)?

    Hi folks,
    I am running a program; but I don't want to monitor it all the time without being able to do something else. Is there any funciton something like beep(.) that will make a sound? I want to let the computer notify me when it's done...

    Thanks.

    Code:
    std::cout << '\a';
    will do it.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
