winibw2pica - convert WinIBW PICA+ download to valid PICA+
winibw2pica [options] inputfile(s)
This script can be used to convert "PICA+" download files from WinIBW3 software to valid PICA+. You can download so called PICA+ from WinIBW with the WinIBW command
DOWNLOAD (or just
DOW). The calling syntax is:
DOW <n1>[-<n2> ] P[<n3>]
n1 ist the first and
n2 is the last record number that you want to download from the current result list (staring with 1) and
n3 is either a library number or
A for all libraries. If you omit
n3 then only level 0 will be downloaded. Unfortunately the resulting download format is not valid PICA+ nor valid UTF-8 but it includes some additional lines, linebreaks, control characters and other nasty stuff. This script tries to clean the WinIBW output and returns PICA+ on success.
If this script failed to convert some data, please first make sure to install the latest version of PICA::Record. If there is still an error afterwards, send me a detailed bug report with the version number of this script, the downloaded data, your WinIBW version number and a detailed list of which WinIBW commands you performed to produce the download.
More information about WinIBW3 can be found in the WinIBW3 manual in German at http://www.gbv.de/wikis/cls/WinIBW3.
