Readme for hCsound-0.2

hCsound - Haskell interface to the Csound API.

Enable control of Csound from the Haskell language.

Requirements: a haskell compiler (currently tested with GHC 6.6+), a working Csound installation, and a version of libsndfile compatible with csound.

In the simplest case, this program can be built in the standard cabal manner, as below:
        > runhaskell Setup.lhs configure
        > runhaskell Setup.lhs build
        > runhaskell Setup.lhs install

The standard build assumes that csound.h is intalled in /usr/local/include/csound (UNIX/Linux) or C:\Csound\include (Windows), and that the csound libary is installed in /usr/local/lib.  If csound is installed in another location, you must edit hCsound.cabal and specify the correct location for the header file in the include-dirs: line, and the library in the extra-lib-dirs line.  This library also assumes that you are using a 64-bit Csound.

Installing on Windows: Edit hCsound.cabal and change the extra-lib-dirs line to an appropriate value for your system.  Also change include-dirs if necessary.  Installing on Windows is tricky, and I have frequently had problems with the linker included in GHC and the csound DLL.  Please contact the hCsound maintainer for further help.

Using with 32-bit Csound:
edit hCsound.cabal and change the extra-libraries line from csound64 to csound32.
