    And that's PNG, for reading something more hard to come by, like OggVorbis, there's just one tiny mid-level library called libvorbis. (btw does anyone know a working email of the maintainer of that package, I have an update for that too)
  • Should raw library bindings drop the namespace prefix?
    5 projects | /r/haskell | 11 Dec 2022
    For context, I have written complete bindings to five different C libraries (freetype2, libvorbis, libspng, al, Chipmunk2D) and the question in the title may very well be the last one I have concerning FFI for quite some time. The question originates from the fact that chiphunk strips prefixes, something no other low-level library I've seen does.

    Over the past few years I've written several low-level bindings: freetype2 (actually on Hackage), libvorbis (still waiting for a review on that one) and libpng (package name for that is free, I've just never submitted anything to Hackage myself).
