     code which prodces a standard audibile warning from the
     computer or terminal.  In the teletype days it really was a

     sound sample (e.g. the sound of a bell) played through a
     loudspeaker.
  
     Also called "G-bell", because it is typed as Control-G.
  
     The term "beep" is preferred among some microcomputer
     hobbyists.
  
     Compare feep, visible bell.
