There's man pages for lame??


Lame is essentially a programmer's tool. A "library" and a set of
under-the-hood utilities that handle the specifics of converting
data from one form to another. You really don't need to know much
about it other than it fixes up your problem. 

You can thank lawyers for lame, or something like it, not being
installed on most Linux systems by default...
