MARC/Perl is a Perl library for reading, manipulating, outputting and converting bibliographic records in the MARC format. However, it is often advantageous for libraries to be able to create or massage pre-existing MARC data on the way into or out-of such systems. This is the niche that MARC/Perl was designed to fill. MARC.pm development began in the summer of 1999. After much experimentation, enhancement and discussion the MARC::Record framework was adopted which provides a scalable approach to processing MARC data with Perl. Users can still download and get documentation for MARC.pm, but it is recommended that new users download MARC::Record. Future development of the MARC namespace on CPAN will be through MARC::Record.
