The al package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, sound ] [ Propose Tags ]

OpenAL is a minimalistic sound API that aims to provide bare features for spacialized audio. The API looks like the OpenGL one, thus the libs are pretty great together. Up to now, no OpenAL extension is supported. You're highly invited to contribute ;). EAX is not supported yet eiher. It'll be embedded in future releases, soon. IMPORTANT: In order to build and install "al", you'll need to pass the path of the include and libs directory of your OpenAL installation. Then use this to install: cabal install --extra-include-dirs=path_to_include --extra-lib-dirs=path_to_libs
