Readme for hCsound-0.2.2

[back to package description]
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 default is to build against 64-bit csound.  The flag useDouble controls whether the library is built against 32-bit or 64-bit csound.  Disable this flag (with -f-useDouble) to link to 32-bit csound.

Installing on Windows: 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.

Installing on Mac: the default cpp on Leopard seems buggy.  If c2hs has lexer errors during build, build with these options:
	--cpp=gcc --cppopts=-E --cppopts=-xc-header
