Version 1.3


This program causes the server machine to beep rather than a connected client.


To build the 'sysbeep' binary:

	$ make

To move the 'sysbeep' binary to /bin and copy the manual page file 'sysbeep.7.gz'
to /usr/share/man/man7:

	$ make install

By default, the program will only execute successfully for the super-user.
To allow all users execute permissions to 'sysbeep' (after installed):

	$ make setuid

To remove the object file generated by make:

	$ make clean

To delete the installed binary and manual:

	$ make uninstall


After it is installed, the 'sysbeep' command will send ASCII code 7 to /dev/console,
causing the server machine to beep rather than the remote client. For access to the
device file, the program must be run with super-user privileges; the enclosed Makefile
contains an optional 'setuid' instruction to allow any user to run 'sysbeep'.
