Here we describe commands to make the terminal ask for the user to pay attention to it.

`bl'
String of commands to cause the terminal to make an audible sound. If this capability is absent, the terminal has no way to make a suitable sound.

`vb'
String of commands to cause the screen to flash to attract attention ("visible bell"). If this capability is absent, the terminal has no way to do such a thing.
