Project description


beepfun is free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 3 (or any later version). This is version 0.1.0 of the program.


The author of beepfun is Niels G. W. Serup <>.


beepfun uses Git for code management. The newest code is available at:

$ git clone git://


For now, don’t install it. Compile the C files it by running python3 build_ext --inplace, and then run bypmylydy instead of beepfun when asked to run beepfun.

After cloning the git repo and cd’ing into the beepfun directory, run this:

# python3 install


Run this:

beepfun melody.beep

to play one melody file, and this:

beepfun melody0 melody1

to play the merging of two melody files, etc.

When you run beepfun, it loops the files. To stop it, kill it.
