       mppenc - Musepack lossy audio codec encoder


       mppenc [--options] [input_file] [output_file]


       mppenc  is  a  Musepack  lossy  audio  codec  encoder.   Musepack  is  a lossy audio codec
       specifically optimized for transparent compression of stereo audio at bitrates of  160-180


       -      STDIN (only RIFF WAVE files)

              soundcard (OSS, 44.1 kHz)

       *.wav  RIFF WAVE file

              RAW PCM file (2ch, 16bit, 44.1kHz)

              LPAC file (Windows only)

              FLAC file

       *.ape  Monkey's Audio file (APE extension only)

              RK Audio file (Windows only)

       *.sz   SZIP file

       *.shn  Shorten file

       *.wv   Wavpack file

       .ofr   OptimFROG file (Windows only)

       Currently  only 32, 37.8, 44.1 and 48 kHz, 1-8 channels, 8-32 bit linear PCM is supported.
       When using one of the lossless compressed formats,  a  proper  binary  must  be  installed
       within the system's $PATH.
