curs_beep(3CURSES)	   Curses Library Functions	    curs_beep(3CURSES)

NAME
       curs_beep, beep,	flash -	curses bell and	screen flash routines

SYNOPSIS
       cc [ flag ... ] file ...	-lcurses [ library ... ]
       #include	<curses.h>

       int beep(void);

       int flash(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The  beep()  and	flash()	routines are used to signal the	terminal user.
       The routine beep() sounds the audible alarm on the terminal, if	possi-
       ble;  if	that is	not possible, it flashes the screen (visible bell), if
       that is possible. The routine flash() flashes the screen, and  if  that
       is not possible,	sounds the audible signal. If neither signal is	possi-
       ble, nothing happens. Nearly all	terminals have an audible signal (bell
       or beep), but only some can flash the screen.

RETURN VALUES
       These routines always return OK.
