Well, I suppose I should read all 86 pages of the manual.  That should only
take a couple hours.

When I did read the man page(s), I searched for "beep".  Since the
documentation considers the correct term to be "bell", I didn't find it.  I
don't know anybody who calls it a "bell".

Thanks for the explanations.
