al: OpenAL 1.1 raw API.

[ 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 --extr-lib-dirs=path_to_libs
