Shine MP3 encoder

Shine is a minimalistic MP3 encoder developed by Gabriel Bouvigne, of LAME development fame. His goal with it was not quality, but simplifying the encoding algorithms as much as possible while retaining standard compatibility. For that reason, it's a good starting point for people wanting to implement an encoder from scratch.

It is also the only open source MP3 encoder that runs on fixed point math machines - all other known public encoders depend on an FPU. The fixed point implementation was done by Peter Everett for ARM's RISCOS operating system.

The "official" Shine page is located at MP3-Tech. It is said that "Shine is really lame, but LAME really shines".
