Smile OpenBSD : Need the beep(1) command.

Hi, I need the beep(1) command on OpenBSD. It is really in use with my programs that I code and also, for playing music. I can't find it in
and google. Now, I need to ask here...

What's the simplest way to install beep and hopefully it works?

yeah tried that, but, I would need the exact "beep" command. And, It won't be in C. I would need to use that in sh.


amd64, beep, cli, command, openbsd
