I don't know if it comes with slackware by default though, but you can download it from

For sure the best mp3 encoder has to be "lame". Not sure if it is included, not a slackware user, but it is available on every linux distro

this simpliest way to call it is:

lame <infile> <outfile>
There are many different options for bitrate etc. Best thing to do is read the man page for more info.

lame is not included in slackware but i download it from lame's official website at sourceforge and installed it and converted the wav file.

thanks for your help guys...
