PHP MARC Library goes Super-Alpha
Aside from the fact that I love the idea of a Super-Alpha software release, I am excited to announce that Dan Scott has released his attempt to PEARify the existing PHP-MARC package which was develpoed by Christoffer Landtman at Realnode Ltd. as part of the Emilda ILS project. Whereas PHP-MARC was based around the existing CPAN MARC_Record Perl library, File_MARC is a rewrite utilising only the core algorithms from MARC_Record and PHP-MARC. At a glance, the code looks cleaner, and the class structure appeals from the outset. As a keen user of PHP-MARC, I look forward to testing this Super-Alpha code one some of my recent Data migration scripts.
