    Depends, if you want to use your speaker or your soundcard.

    Well, the soundcard, I'm tired to use the PC speaker...

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(void)
        putchar ('\a');
        return (0);
    This is a default beep.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    See if this will help. Creative used to have tech docs on a ftp server, but that appears to have gone offline.

    Of course there is always google.
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P
