First generation automata speech.
Beep is usually a pure tone, between 100 and 500hz; often constructed with a square wave for expediency's sake. In Old automata, beeps were generated with a mechanical bell.

In everyone's favorite language, BASIC, the command BEEP does just that--it emits a short beep.

BEEP is also a new Internet Draft, called Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol, described in RFC 3080.

beep n.,v.
