yaz-marcdump - MARC record dump utility


   yaz-marcdump [-i format] [-o format] [-f from] [-t to] [-l spec]
                [-c cfile] [-s prefix] [-C size] [-n] [-p] [-v] [-V]


   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.

       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.


   -i format
       Specifies input format. Must be one of marcxml, marc (ISO2709),
       marcxchange (ISO25577), line (line mode MARC), or turbomarc (Turbo

   -o format
       Specifies output format. Must be one of marcxml, marc (ISO2709),
       marcxchange (ISO25577), line (line mode MARC), or turbomarc (Turbo

   -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.

       Makes yaz-marcdump prints record number and input file offset of
       each record read.

       MARC output is omitted so that MARC input is only checkecd.

       Writes more information about the parsing process. Useful if you
       have ill-formatted ISO2709 records as input.

       Prints YAZ version.


   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
