#'Play a short sound
#'
#'\code{beep} plays a short sound which is useful if you want to get notified, 
#'for example, when a script has finished. As an added bonus there are a number 
#'of different sounds to choose from.
#'
#'If \code{beep} is not able to play the sound a warning is issued rather than 
#'an error. This is in order to not risk aborting or stopping the process that
#'you wanted to get notified about.
#'
#'@param sound character string or number specifying what sound to be played by 
#'  either specifying one of the built in sounds, specifying the path to a wav 
#'  file or specifying an url. The default is 1. Possible sounds are:
#'  \enumerate{ \item \code{"ping"} \item \code{"coin"} \item \code{"fanfare"}
#'  \item \code{"complete"} \item \code{"treasure"} \item \code{"ready"} \item
#'  \code{"shotgun"} \item \code{"mario"} \item \code{"wilhelm"} \item
#'  \code{"facebook"} \item \code{"sword"} } If \code{sound} does not match any
#'  of the sounds above, or is a valid path or url, a random sound will be
#'  played. Currently \code{beep} can only handle http urls, https is not
#'  supported.
#'@param expr An optional expression to be excecuted before the sound.
