What is it?

ev_bell can call external programs when the linux kernel generates a simple sound event like the bell signal from the console.
It looks for sound events on /dev/input/event*, parses them and calls the external program afterwards. The fields of the event packet can be put inside of the argument string of that program.

The program is freely distributable under the terms of the GNU General Public License
