What is the procedure for including libFLAC support in a program. The
documentation mentions the public header files which seem to have fairly
generic names, and I notice they aren't installed after a "make
install". How then should a program that uses libFLAC find these header
files? This doesn't seem like the usual setup for a library. Shouldn't
there be like one header file "libflac.h" or "flac.h" or something that
gets installed in the system /usr/include? Also perhaps a flac-config
shell script that describes the C and LIBS flags to compile flac
support. As things are right now it looks like one would have to package
the header files with a program or have the user set a config flag to
point to the flac source header files.
I also noticed that stream_encoder.h isn't in the 0.10 version release,
is this only in CVS currently? Lates..
