Here's some instructions for installing hogg on a current Ubuntu 8.10
(or Debian unstable? testing?) system, ie. if you don't already have
haskell's cabal system installed:
$ sudo apt-get install ghc6
$ wget http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/cabal-install/0.6.0/cabal-install-0.6.0.tar.gz
$ tar zxf cabal-install-0.6.0.tar.gz
$ cd cabal-install-0.6.0
$ cabal update
$ cabal install hogg
This is from memory; please correct if any extra/fewer steps are needed :-)

> HOgg 0.4.1 Released
> The HOgg package provides a commandline tool for manipulating Ogg files,
> and a corresponding Haskell library. HOgg is in hackage, or on the web at:
> This is the fourth public release. The focus is on correctness of Ogg
> parsing, production and editing. The capabilities of the hogg commandline
> tool are roughly on par with those of the oggz*  tools.
> HOgg supports chained and multiplexed Ogg bitstreams conformant with
> RFC3533. HOgg can parse headers for CELT, CMML, FLAC, OggPCM, Speex, Theora
> and Vorbis media codecs, and can read and write Ogg Skeleton bitstreams.
>  Oggz: http://www.annodex.net/software/liboggz/index.html
>  RFC3533: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3533.txt
> New in this release
> This release is updated for Hackage, the Haskell source packaging system.
> The hogg tool contains a new subcommand for generating man pages, "hogg man".
> Additionally, an autogenerated version of the main hogg man page (hogg.1)
> is distributed with the source tarball.
> Hackage Installation
> HOgg is in Hackage, at:
> If you have the Hackage "cabal" system installed, simply run:
> $ cabal update
> $ cabal install hogg
> Source Tarball Installation
> I am very interested in hearing about problems with building or installing
> the package, particularly from people who are not yet familiar with building
> from Haskell source. You need ghc instead of gcc; it compiles to a binary:
> $ cabal configure
> $ cabal build
> $ cabal install
> (A ./Setup.hs is also included, which may be used in place of the "cabal"
> command if that not present).
> Building of this release has been tested with:
> * GHC version 6.8.2 
> * The Haskell build system "Cabal" version 126.96.36.199 
> The GHC and Cabal versions listed above span the packages available in most
> current distributions. I've tested on Debian unstable and Ubuntu 8.10. I'm
> particularly interested to hear reports of build success or failure on other
> distributions or operating systems.

> info Display information about the specified files and

> dump Hexdump packets of an Ogg file
> pagedump Display page structure of an Ogg file
> dumpraw Dump raw (unparsed) page data
> rip Rip selected logical bistreams from an Ogg file (default: all)
> reconstruct Reconstruct an Ogg file by doing a full packet demux
> chop Extract a section (specify start and/or end time)
> merge Merge, interleaving pages in order of presentation time
> sort Rewrite with correct page ordering
> addskel Write a Skeleton logical bitstream
> known-codecs List codecs known by this version of hogg
