Default mpc123 --waw decodes .mpc to .wav

I was having the same problem: I found mpc123 on the standard ubuntu repositories, which worked perfectly for listening, but then lame encoded the files like if they were .wav, thus producing only noise! Then I realized on mpc123 man page that a line like

mpc123 --wav file.wav file.mpc

does the job (note: it is "- - w a v": on some fonts double dashes are hardly recognized)

bye, Andrea
