       curs_beep, beep, flash - Curses bell and screen flash routines

       #include <curses.h>

       int beep(
	       void ); int flash(
	       void );

       Curses Library (libcurses)

       Interfaces  documented on this reference page conform to industry stan‐
       dards as follows:

       beep, flash: XCURSES4.2

       Refer to the standards(5) reference page	 for  more  information	 about
       industry standards and associated tags.

       The  beep  and  flash routines are used to alert the terminal user. The
       routine beep sounds the audible alarm on the terminal, if possible.  If
       an audible alarm is not possible, the routine flashes the screen (visi‐
       ble bell), if possible.

       The routine flash flashes the screen, and  if  that  is	not  possible,
       sounds the audible alarm.

       If neither an audible or visual signal is possible, these routines pro‐
       duce no results. Nearly all terminals have an audible signal  (bell  or
       beep), but only some can flash the screen.

       The  header  file  <curses.h>  automatically  includes  the header file

       These routines always return OK.
