The OpenAL package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

A Haskell binding for the OpenAL cross-platform 3D audio API, appropriate for use with gaming applications and many other types of audio applications.

On Windows, this package works well with the "OpenAL Soft" binary distribution from Type 'cabal install --extra-lib-dirs=<DIR>' where <DIR> is the directory where libOpenAL32.dll.a is located (must be an absolute path). Then rename soft_oal.dll to OpenAL32.dll and put it somewhere in the PATH. I found that c:\Windows\ worked.

This package has also been tested on GNU/Linux and iOS.
