; It will play 12 notes of the octave starting at middle C.
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; How to generate sound on the IBM PC :
;
; The 8255 (port 61H) bit 0 controls the 8253 timer
; bit 1 controls the speaker
;
; The output channel 2 from the 8253 timer will be ANDed with the
; speaker control bit in order to turn on/off the speaker.
;
; Timer channel 2 internal count register (port 42h) is loaded in
; two successive OUT operations with the lower byte being loaded first.
; For this to work properly, timer command register has to be loaded first
; with B6H.
;
; Since the input clock to the timer chip is 1.19318 MHz, the counter value
; to generate the frequency X can be calculated by 1193180 / X.
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; CX is used as a note counter with the frequency effectively being
; incremented by a half tone and the corresponding count being loaded
; into the count register on each iteration.
;
; No stack segment is needed for this small program, so don't panic
; when you receive the 'No stack segment' warning.
