  Description     : Perl extension for handling MARC records

Provides modules that define MARC fields, check the validity of MARC
records, and handle MARC records as objects.

The MARC (MAchine Readable Cataloging) format was designed by the Library
of Congress in the late 1960s in order to allow libraries to convert their
card catalogs into a digital format. The advantages of having computerized
card catalogs were soon realized, and now MARC is being used by all sorts
of libraries around the world to provide computerized access to their
collections. MARC data in transmission format is optimized for processing
by computers, so it's not very readable for the normal human.

Packages available as follows:

  deb http://users.adelphia.net/~david.everly emilda/sarge/
  deb-src http://users.adelphia.net/~david.everly emilda/sarge/

This is a requirement for the Emilda package (http://www.emilda.org/),
for which I am also seeking a sponsor (http://bugs.debian.org/263826).
