Sounding a bell on the PC

There are probably lots of ways to do this, but it does require a
program to be running on the PC, looking at output from the ARMmite on
the USB/serial port.

Basically the program on the ARMmite has to send some command (set of
characters) back to a program running on the PC that responds by
sounding the bell.

In Tcl the command to do that is bell

In Visual Basic, it would be beep 200, 200 ' beep freq, duration
