Does perl have a built in function to make the system speaker beep?
If not how do you call another exe file? Thanks!

    Don't believe there is a built in function, but there is a CPAN module:-

    Oh man...look at the example...
    my $beeper = Audio::Beep->new();
    Sorry, it's just gone midnight and that line of code has cracked me up...

    Try system('command');. Alternatively there is exec, or you can open a pipe to/from it depending on whether you want to pipe data in our out, or put the name of the command between `backticks`. ONLY use backticks if you want to harvest the return value of the program, otherwise it's a waste of resources.

    BEEEEEP,

    Jonathan
