I just wanted to let you all know that GNU Make is one of my favorite 
programs, and you all are awesome for producing such a high quality piece 
of Free Software. However, not too many people are aware that you can use 
make in a non-programming context. Below is an Makefile for audio 
re-encoding. It decodes and encodes all files of a given suffix in the 
current directory. Feel free to use it on websites, in books, anywhere.


PS: Plz cc any replies as I am not subscribed to this list.
