Encoding "BEL" (bell character, ASCII 7)

  1. May 13, 2016 #1
    Hello folks,

    I need to find a way to obtain (encode) the "bell" character, ASCII 7, and send it in chat conversations. Although "bell" is almost forgotten in today's practice, I find that it is a very convenient mean to draw the attention of the counterpart, for example in chat services that don't offer an option to "beep" the computer of participants. The problem is: how to encode it? [CTRL+G] only works in a command-line environment, not in web pages.

    Any ideas?--- :oldeyes:

    It's exactly the same as [CTRL+G], works only in command line or DOS environment... :oldcry:
