Windows, to at least 7, using Python 2.0.1 to 3.3.2. Various Linux flavours using Python 2.4.6 to 3.2.2. Apple OSX 10.7.x and above using Python 2.5.6 to 3.4.1.</p> <p>The file size is 8044 bytes and _IF_ you need to it can be palyed directly without a player on some Linux flavours that have the /dev/dsp device. It is an 8 bit, unsigned integer, mono, 8000Hz sampling speed 8000 byte RAW file with the WAVE header added.</p> <p>It will still work with PulseAudio and OSS using...</p> <p>cat /full/path/to/beep.wav &gt; /dev/dsp</p> <p>...but with a momenatry click due to the 44 header bytes; but hey it is a beep alternative...</p> <p>Enjoy finding simple solutions to often very difficult problems.</p> <p>Bazza.</p> A Bash Beep Command For OSX 10.7+...
