yaz-marcdump - MARC record dump utility SYNOPSIS
yaz-marcdump [-i format] [-o format] [-f from] [-t to] [-l spec] [-c cfile] [-s prefix] [-C size] [-n] [-p] [-v] [-V] [file...] DESCRIPTION
yaz-marcdump reads MARC records from one or more files. It parses each record and supports output in line-format, ISO2709, MARCXML, MarcXchange as well as Hex output. This utility parses records ISO2709(raw MARC) as well as XML if that is structured as MARCXML/MarcXchange. Note As of YAZ 2.1.18, OAI-MARC is no longer supported. OAI-MARC is deprecated. Use MARCXML instead. By default, each record is written to standard output in a line format with newline for each field, $x for each subfield x. The output format may be changed with option -o, yaz-marcdump can also be requested to perform character set conversion of each record. OPTIONS
-i format Specifies input format. Must be one of marcxml, marc (ISO2709), marcxchange (ISO25577), line (line mode MARC), or turbomarc (Turbo MARC). -o format Specifies output format. Must be one of marcxml, marc (ISO2709), marcxchange (ISO25577), line (line mode MARC), or turbomarc (Turbo MARC). -f from Specify the character set from of the input MARC record. Should be used in conjunction with option -t. Refer to the yaz-iconv man page for supported character sets. -t to Specify the character set of of the output. Should be used in conjunction with option -f. Refer to the yaz-iconv man page for supported character sets. -l leaderspec Specify a simple modification string for MARC leader. The leaderspec is a list of pos=value pairs, where pos is an integer offset (0 - 23) for leader. Value is either a quoted string or an integer (character value in decimal). Pairs are comma separated. For example, to set leader at offset 9 to a, use 9='a'. -s prefix Writes a chunk of records to a separate file with prefix given, i.e. splits a record batch into files with only at most "chunk" ISO2709 record per file. By default chunk is 1 (one record per file). See option -C. -C chunksize Specifies chunk size; to be used conjunction with option -s. -p Makes yaz-marcdump prints record number and input file offset of each record read. -n MARC output is omitted so that MARC input is only checkecd. -v Writes more information about the parsing process. Useful if you have ill-formatted ISO2709 records as input. -V Prints YAZ version. EXAMPLES
The following command converts MARC21/USMARC in MARC-8 encoding to MARC21/USMARC in UTF-8 encoding. Leader offset 9 is set to 'a'. Both input and output records are ISO2709 encoded. yaz-marcdump -f MARC-8 -t UTF-8 -o marc -l 9=97 marc21.raw >marc21.utf8.raw The same records may be converted to MARCXML instead in UTF-8: yaz-marcdump -f MARC-8 -t UTF-8 -o marcxml marc21.raw >marcxml.xml Turbo MARC is a compact XML notation with same semantics as MARCXML, but which allows for faster processing via XSLT. In order to generate Turbo MARC records encoded in UTF-8 from MARC21 (ISO), one could use: yaz-marcdump -f MARC8 -t UTF8 -o turbomarc -i marc marc21.raw >out.xml FILES

MARC::Crosswalk::DublinCore - Convert data between MARC and Dublin Core SYNOPSIS
my $crosswalk = MARC::Crosswalk::DublinCore->new; # Convert a MARC record to Dublin Core (simple) my $marc = MARC::Record->new_from_usmarc( $blob ); my $dc = $crosswalk->as_dublincore( $marc ); # Convert simple DC to MARC $marc = $crosswalk->as_marc( $dc ); # Convert MARC to qualified DC instead $crosswalk->qualified( 1 ); $dc = $crosswalk->as_dublincore( $marc ); DESCRIPTION
This module provides an implentation of the LOC's spec on how to convert metadata between MARC and Dublin Core format. The spec for con- verting MARC to Dublin Core is available at:, and from DC to MARC: NB: The conversion cannot be done in a round-trip manner. i.e. Doing a conversion from MARC to DC, then trying to go back to MARC will not yield the original record. INSTALLATION
To install this module via Module::Build: perl Build.PL ./Build # or `perl Build` ./Build test # or `perl Build test` ./Build install # or `perl Build install` To install this module via ExtUtils::MakeMaker: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install METHODS
new( %options ) Creates a new crosswalk object. You can pass the "qualified" option (true/false) as well. # DC Simple $crosswalk = MARC::Crosswalk::DublinCore->new; # DC Qualified $crosswalk = MARC::Crosswalk::DublinCore->new( qualified => 1 ); qualified( $qualified ) Allows you to specify if qualified Dublin Core should be used in the input or output. Defaults to false (DC simple). # DC Simple $crosswalk->qualified( 0 ); # DC Qualified $crosswalk->qualified( 1 ); as_dublincore( $marc ) convert a MARC::Record to a DublinCore::Record. as_marc( $dublincore ) convert a DublinCore::Record to a MARC::Record. NB: Not yet implemented. TODO
* Implement as_marc() * add tests SEE ALSO
