Description

Generates a message beep.

Beep generates a conventional beep message.

Note: On Windows, the Beep routine is based on the Windows API Messages.

Note: On MAC OS, to minimize library dependencies in the runtime library, the Beep routine has limited functionality.

Note: On MAC OS, the beep is generated by writing a "bell character" (ASCII #7) to either the STDERR or STDOUT terminal file streams when available.
