NAME

Catmandu::Importer::MAB2 - Package that imports MAB2 data

SYNOPSIS

    use Catmandu::Importer::MAB2;

    my $importer = Catmandu::Importer::MAB2->new(file => "./t/mab2.dat", type=> "raw");

    my $n = $importer->each(sub {
        my $hashref = $_[0];
        # ...
    });

To convert between MAB2 syntax variants with the catmandu command line client:

    catmandu convert MAB2 --type raw to MAB2 --type xml < mab2.dat

MAB2

The parsed MAB2 record is a HASH containing two keys '_id' containing the 001 field (or the system identifier of the record) and 'record' containing an ARRAY of ARRAYs for every field:

 {
  'record' => [
                [
                    '001',
                    ' ',
                    '_',
                    'fol05882032 '
                ],
                [
                    245,
                    'a',
                    'a',
                    'Cross-platform Perl /',
                    'c',
                    'Eric F. Johnson.'
                ],
        ],
  '_id' => 'fol05882032'
 }
