There's no standard C function for it on all platforms.

If you are writing Windows programs (including console programs say with Visual C 2/3/4/5/6) you can simply use sndPlaySound

#include <windows.h>
#include <mmsystem.h>
int main( int argc, char * argv[] )
{
sndPlaySound( "C:\\EXAMPLE\\NOISE.WAV", 0 ) ;
return 0
}

Make sure your program links to the library called winmm.lib (this should be in project settings in your compiler's IDE)

If you use string literals for the path name, don't forget any back slashes need to be doubled up, e.g. the path of the file I use above is actually C:\EXAMPLE\NOISE.WAV
