[Openal] What goes after main()?

If you are just starting to use OpenAL, ALUT is definitely the way to go
as it takes away the burden of device/context-management, file loading,
etc. But one small warning: The tutorial mentioned below uses the old,
deprecated ALUT API. The new ALUT implementation still supports it, but
if possible, avoid learning the deprecated stuff. :-) The ALUT spec
(http://www.openal.org/openal_webstf/specs/alut.html) even has a 16-line
"Hello, world" program, and the ALUT sources
(http://www.openal.org/downloads.html) come with another example, which
simply plays a given sound file (currently ALUT supports
*.wav/*.au/*.raw, but this will be expanded in the future).
If somebody else has an example program using ALUT, I'd be more than
happy to incorporate it into the next ALUT release.
