    system("esdplay somewavfile"); //general
    system("artsplay wavefile"); //kde

    Sound programming is something of a slippery slope, but it's not execively hard. First you'll want to include sys/soundcard.h. Then you'll want to take a look at the open sound programmers guide (free download). My guess is that you're going to be constructing your own wav player.

    I haven't heard of a way to create sound effects directly from C, however. You'll still need to make a sound file, and then play that.
