BEEP statement

Purpose

Sound a tone through the computer's speaker.

Syntax

BEEP

Remarks

BEEP plays the default Windows waveform sound, typically a second tone, through either the built-in speaker; or a sound card if installed (in which case the Windows "Default Beep" sound is played).  The Default Beep can be configured in the Sounds section of Control Panel.

Restrictions

The physical aspects of the built-in speaker may have an effect on the quality and level of the resultant sound.
