Hi and welcome to LQ!
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/
and specifically
http://advbash.activeventure.net/quoting.html (down the page a bit)

sorry if this isn't what you are looking for, but you didn't mention what language you are using.

I've reported for this to be moved to programming- it should get lots of responses there.

you also need to be careful to not get homework help here- we are not here to do your homework for you- you learn better when you do it yourself. This passes (as not being homework help) but you're close.

There's 'beep' command. It has a man page and lots of options. That's the easiest way to do what you want.

I'm not moving this to Programming because, if I understand the question corrrectly, it's rather about software
