I've got tired of beep not working, here is toot (cross-platform C C++), toot works.

a beep that beeps
it's both a C C++ library and a command line tool
Windows OSX Linux BSD Solaris Minix Raspbian
toot v1.0.6 (c) 2017 Guillaume Vareille zlib licence
void toot(float aFrequency_Hz, int aLength_ms) ;
Usage: toot [-f frequency_Hz] [-l length_ms]
toot [-v] [--verbose]
toot [-h] [--help]
toot [--version]
Default: toot -f 440. -l 300
Example: toot
the release tab contains windows and osx executables
make sure the volume is on (though some beeps may use the hardware speaker)
if you can't adjust frequency / length (or if it doesn't beep)
on osx: you can install sox
on unix: you can install pactl or speaker-test or sox
If you know of any other way to reliably generate sine wave sound or beep on
anykind of machine, I'll be happy to add them to toot. Let me know: toot at
$ gcc -o toot_cmd_line_main.c toot.c
( or clang )
$ gcc -o toot toot_cmd_line_main.c toot.c
( or clang tcc cc CC )
MinGW :
> gcc -o toot.exe toot_cmd_line_main.c toot.c -LC:/mingw/lib -lkernel32
( or tcc )
VisualStudio :
Create an application project or an empty project (it links against Kernel32.lib)
I am also the author of tiny file dialogs
it's a cross-platform C C++ file that offers many native dialogs
no init, no main loop, no include, no linking
/ \ NotifyPopup InputBox PasswordBox MessageBox ColorPicker
|tiny file| OpenFileDialog SaveFileDialog SelectFolderDialog
| dialogs | ASCII UTF-8 (and also MBCS UTF-16 on windows)
\____ ___/ Native dialog library for WINDOWS MAC OSX GTK+ QT CONSOLE
You can’t perform that action at this time.
