Unlike printf("\a"), beep allows you to control pitch, duration, and
repetitions. Its job is to live inside shell/perl scripts and allow
more granularity than one would otherwise have.  It is controlled
completely through command line options.  It's not supposed to be
complex, and it isn't - but it makes system monitoring (or whatever
else it gets hacked onto) that much more informative.
You may need to set beep executable suid.
