VtBeep -- ring the terminal bell


VtBeep [ options ]


Rings the terminal bell.


-duration n
On bitmapped terminals, specifies the number of milliseconds the bell rings for. On character terminals, specifies 100 times the number of times the terminal bell rings. (For example, -duration 500 will ring the bell for half a second on a bitmapped terminal, or ring the bell five times in succession on a character terminal.)

-pitch n
Set the frequency of the bell in Herz. (This defaults to the server default pitch. It is ignored when in character mode.)

-volume n
Sets the maximum volume n to ring the bell at (as for XBell(); the range is -100 to +100). The default is 50. (This option is ignored when in character mode.)
