    Question Beep And Win98

    I've been trying to make a console-piano type program, and I need some basic tones. I dont feel like downloading them, and Beep on win98 is the standard tone. Is there another function or should I find some kind of thing like allegro, Directx etc?

    Use the sound(int); function

    You can use a funtion called: sound(int); and set the frequency in hertz, this only works with the DJGPP, you can download the library at: http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/

    Win98 doesn't take the parameters, it just gives me the standard gong noise (error box noise)

    I have DJGPP but I'm working with Borland now so...Next option!
    How 'bout allegro or directx? which leads me to another question

    What is Directx's address. I need to send away for the SDK CD-ROM (try saying that 5x fast!) I can't download it (160MB )
