How can I create a beep from the PC speaker using Visual C++ 4.0? Is there a "sound(Freq.)" and "nosound(Freq.)" that I can use?

Why two questions?  I don't see the difference?  On think that might be significant is that the beep() function will not return until the sound finishes.  That is not a problem for a warning beep, but is a problem if you want to play music.

What is the header file that I have to include in order to use the function Beep()? I am using Visual C++4.0.
