It lets you specify the alarm time in minutes as a command line argument, and prints a wake-up message and beeps a few times, after that time arrives. You can use 0 for the minutes to test it immediately, including to adjust the volume using your speaker controls.</p> A white noise generator to sooth baby to sleep.

The sounds are stored in a custom format (some experimentation in archiving files). This is committed for archival to be run under Python 2.5 or later versions.</p> Queue for managing multiple SIGALRM alarms concurrently (Python) 2012-12-06T18:58:11-08:00Glenn Eychanerhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/4172294/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/577600-queue-for-managing-multiple-sigalrm-alarms-concurr/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577600 by <a href="/recipes/users/4172294/">Glenn Eychaner</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/alarm/">alarm</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/queue/">queue</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/signal/">signal</a>). Revision 3. </p> <p>In asynchronous code, <em>signal.alarm()</em> is extremely useful for setting and handling timeouts and other timed and periodic tasks. It has a major limitation, however, that only one alarm function and alarm time can be set at a time; setting a new alarm disables the previous alarm. This package uses a <em>heapq</em> to maintain a queue of alarm events, allowing multiple alarm functions and alarm times to be set concurrently.</p> Command Line Windows Alarm Clock (Python) 2012-12-05T23:53:49-08:00Stephen Chappellhttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/2608421/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/578362-command-line-windows-alarm-clock/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 578362 by <a href="/recipes/users/2608421/">Stephen Chappell</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/alarm/">alarm</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/clock/">clock</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/demonstration/">demonstration</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/windows/">windows</a>). </p> <p>Using primitive but simple calculations, the alarm program below will find the offset to the time specified, sleep, and awake to run an alarm until terminated. This Windows recipe utilizes the <code>msvcrt</code> and <code>winsound</code> modules to operate and has limited use elsewhere.</p>
