Moving to GitHub, slowly

The software on this pages will slowly be moved to GitHub https://github.com/hilbix/. The CVS repository will be migrated to GIT as well, so the history will be preserved, a bit. See FAQ.

Scylla and Charybdis, kdmktone - Tools

The tools are developed under Linux with ESR's paradigm release early, release often in mind.
So you can consider this beta software, or alpha, or pre-alpha, or even worse ;)

Have a look in the download directory for all downloads.
As always here, all you get is the source. No binaries here.

kdmktone 0.0.0-20061021-043020

Make the console beep

⇒ ⇒ ⇒ The development shifted to another location. All future versions will be published at https://github.com/hilbix/kdmktone   ⇐ ⇐ ⇐

This is a helper to play some tunes on the console.

It's commandline is a list of


where hz is the frequency, 0 for 'sound off'
duration is in milliseconds, 100 by default
wait is the wait time, duration by default

You can leave away unused parts, so here is a small Dschingle

for a in 1 2 3; do ./kdmktone 1000 1500 2000 0; done

Please note that some beepers out there don't like some frequencies, such that you cannot hear them. That's not the fault of this tool.

This actually is an old (but now improved) version.

I just created it to let my console beep.
