I want to generate beeping sounds in a program.
I now use Nas, but it is a PITA because it either hangs with 2

Has anybody got another program that does this?
I'm not sure I understand what you want to do, but it sounds like you want
to playback digital audio samples.
If so, what you probably want is something like libao2 and libao-dev.
No, I don't want to play back anything: I want to *generate* a beeping
sound. The type depends upon the occasion.
Right now I use Nas, which has good support from Jon Trulson. But that
is meant really as a network sound server and not made for playing back
to a particular sound card.
E.g. if it is 11:30 I want to produce 5 beeps for maritime chimes.
If the dialup line goes down I want to produce 9 beeps.
I would prefer to produce the beeps for a particular soundcard, for the
user that is logged on to a monotor that uses that card.
