    Wouldn't it be easier to:

    `play darth_vader.wav`

    ????

    If the "victim" of the surprise happened to be wearing the
    headphones, and the headphones happened to be plugged in,
    that would work. Using gnubeep, the sound comes out of the
    computer case, no headphones (or speakers fed by the sound
    card) required.

    By the way, I wrote my own script for it. When I ran it, my
    daughter simply said, "Hi, Dad." Oh, well...
