Publisher Description



Plays one or more of the Standard Windows sounds, triggered
purely from the command line.

use:

honk
- Plays the default system sound.

honk SystemStart SystemHand SystemQuestion
- Plays the given list of standard system sounds (usually just one).
- they are case-insensitive (you can get the case wrong and it will still work).

Possible sound names are listed in the registry under:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/AppEvents/EventLabels.

e.g.

ActivatingDocument
AppGPFFault
BuildComplete
BuildError
BuildWarning
ClipMate5_EmptyClipboard
ClipMate5_Glue
ClipMate5_IgnoreClipboardUpdate
ClipMate5_NewData
ClipMate5_PowerPasteComplete
Close
CriticalBatteryAlarm

SystemAsterisk
SystemDefault
SystemExclamation
SystemExit
SystemHand
SystemQuestion
SystemStart
SystemWelcome
...

You can view the list with regedit. Not all of them are necessarily
hooked up to real sounds and not all of them will be in your registry.
What sounds they play depends on how they are configured in the control panel.

If you were daring you could even add your own and configure them.

These are NOT the same as the names in the control panel or the names
of the *.wav files.

Or you can specify a wav file e.g.

honk C:WindowsMediatada.wav

Honk is much faster than using mplayer or player. Nothing appears on the
screen. It will not hang up if several copies try to play at once.

C++ source included.
