Jack - Bindings to the JACK Audio Connection Kit for Haskell

It's far from being finished...


    runhaskell Setup configure
    runhaskell Setup build
    runhaskell Setup haddock    # if you want
    sudo runhaskell Setup install

You should compile your clients with 'ghc --make -O2 -threaded ...'
