The al package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

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 either. It'll be embedded in future releases, soon. In order to build and install "al", you'll need to have pkg-config installed. For Ubuntu users, there might be a bug with pkg-config. If the install fails, consider using @cabal install al your OpenAL setup is located to – you can help find that with @find / -name al.h@.
