I am not sure if we are talking about the same problem here: As I've recently
noticed to my surprise, the API entries in openal32.dll use the _cdecl
calling convention! AFAIK this is very unusual for a WinDoze DLL, so the
above commit makes sure that the Haskell binding always uses ccall, even on
I've raised this issue on the OpenAL developer's list and asked for the
rationale behind this, but got no real answer:
My personal guess is that this just happened by accident. :-)
