beep: A console beep tool with precision control1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0]

Beep allows the user to control the pc-speaker with precision, allowing different sounds to indicate different events. While it can be run quite happily on the command line, it's intended place of residence is within shell/perl scripts, notifying the user when something interesting occurs. Of course, it has no notion of what's interesting, but it's real good at that notifying part.
