Hello there,

I know that ALC functions are all device specific. Each device supports 
different features, etc.

However, when I examined the OpenAL-Soft source, I could not see any 
difference between the working logic of these 2 functions.

In which cases should we prefer ALC?
In which situations might ALC be used?

For example, alcGetStringiSOFT works successfully with 2 functions.
