I am totally new to Rust with not too much general programming background, just building my first Rust learning project. For that project I would love to be able to play simple sound, be it single notes (e.g. C4) or frequencies. Searching crates.io I found a small library that appeared to do just that: https://crates.io/crates/beep
After downloading the example code did not compile, apparently because it uses linux-specific code and I am on Windows.
So my first question is: could I have seen on crates.io that this was not for Windows? Any flags to watch out for in further search of crates?
Everything else that I find seems to be "bindings to..." or "wrapper for..." things that I know to little of, to decide which route to take. It appears that I would have to delve into details of complex audio systems and probably read C++ howtos but I don't want that now. I want to focus on learning Rust first.
Thus, my second question is: Can someone please guide me which way to go to generate the most simple sounds on Windows preferably with good beginner's documentation, preferably easy to set up, preferably multiplatform, should the project turn out to be useful for others?
Thank you for your time and effort,
