I downloaded the Open Audio Library Software Development Kit and it
comes with .lib files instead of .a(Dev-C++ Static Library File). I was
wondering where could I find a OpenAL Dev-C++ library file(OpenAL.a)?

i’m not sure if you’re familiar with *nix formats but .a [“archives”]
are the same as .libs. I remember using dev-c++ before [3+ years ago]
and I remember being able to just do “-lopenal”, being that the complier
would automatically detect .lib. but if push came to shove, you can
rename the .lib into .a and that should work.
i hope that helps
You can also use the “check for updates/packages” option under Tools.
Or you can go here
Once downloaded, you (assuming that DevCpp was correctly installed)
double click on the file, and package manager installs it for you.
Don’t forget to get the beat_wrap_dll.dll from the OpenAL site if you
are going to be using OggVorbis with OpenAL.
