Neither Corinna nor I have a real machine running Windows 98 any more
so we can't easily test to see if echoing a CTRL-G to a console window
running bash (or any other cygwin shell) actually does anything. Can
anyone confirm if this actually plays a beep?
A worrying note is that I get a sound in my vmware session when I
test the default beep under Control Panel but I don't hear anything
when I echo a CTRL-G under bash. I also can't get any sound from
MessageBeep (-1) using the below program. Other sounds played ok
but not MessageBeep (-1), which is what Cygwin uses.
main (int argc, char **argv)
int beep = *++argv ? atoi (*argv) : -1;
