Depends on what you want to do, the range of values used in the float 
input etc. You have to take care of dithering too. I'd use a tool like 
SoX because there are some very knowledgable people who thought it over.

If you want to learn how, what or why, this list is definitely not the 
right place. Try hydrogenaudio.org, there might be a few people there 
able to answer your question.
