File Information

Replacement of beep-function. Gong sounds a lot nicer then 'beep' (that's my humble opinion). You may adjust the frequency, volume and duration of the gong-sound to distinguish the place in your script were the gong is sound.

The call is very simple:
gong(vol,freq) or

default the gong sounds at 440 Hz (the standard musical a-note)

This sounds nice, but it halts execution of Matlab for 4,000 times longer than the inbuilt 'beep' sound.
