bell - Ring a display's bell
bell ?-displayof window? ?-nice?
This command rings the bell on the display for window and returns an empty string. If the -displayof option is omitted, the display of the
application's main window is used by default. The command uses the current bell-related settings for the display, which may be modified
with programs such as xset.
If -nice is not specified, this command also resets the screen saver for the screen. Some screen savers will ignore this, but others will
reset so that the screen becomes visible again.

Specifies the volume in the range -100 to 100 at which

The XDeviceBell request causes the server to ring a bell on the
specified feedback of the specified device, if possible. The
specified volume is relative to the base volume for the bell.
If an invalid device is specified, a BadDevice error will be
returned. The feedbackclass and feedbackid parameters contain
values returned by an XGetFeedbackControl request and uniquely
identify the bell to ring. If a feedbackclass is specified that
does not support a bell, or if a nonexistent feedbackid is
specified, or a percent value is specified that is not in the
range -100 to 100, a BadValue error will be returned.
The volume at which the bell is rung when the percent argument
is nonnegative is: base - [(base * percent) / 100] + percent
The volume at which the bell rings when the percent argument is
negative is: base + [(base * percent) / 100]
To change the base volume of the bell, use
XDeviceBell can generate a BadDevice or a BadValue error.
