Sure this is an easy one! But I can't seem to find it in my books. Anyway, I am trying to put in an audible beep if the user enters an invalid entry. Using Borland C++ compiler. How do i go about doing this?

I assume this is for a windows program.  If so use the Beep() or MessageBeep() Windows API procedures.

If this is for a DOS program, you can write a BEL control character to the console, like

const char BEL = 7;
cout << BEL;
