NAME

       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
