beepr: Easily Play Notification Sounds on any Platform
This package contains one function, beep(), with one purpose: To make it easy
to play notification sounds on whatever platform you are on. It is intended to
be useful, for example, if you are running a long analysis in the background
and want to know when it is ready.
The package contains one main function beep, check it out to
see what it does. For sound on Windows and MacOS beepr depends on the
audio package. For sound on Linux beepr depends on that either
the paplay utility from the Pulse Audio system, the aplay utility from the
ALSA system, or VLC media player (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html) is
installed and on the PATH. Chances are that you already have one of these.
