This module will read ISIS databases created by DOS CDS/ISIS, WinIsis or IsisMarc. Biblio::Isis is a Perl module which reads ISIS databases produced by CDS/ISIS programs, such as MicroISIS, WinISIS and IsisMARC. ISIS was a popular family of integrated library systems provided as freeware by UNESCO, and this module provides methods to parse full databases and use them in a Perl program in order to migrate them to other formats. It can create hash values from data in ISIS database (using to_hash), ASCII dump (using to_ascii) or just hash with field names and packed values (like ^asomething^belse). Unique feature of this module is ability to include_deleted records. It will also skip zero sized fields (OpenIsis has a bug in XS bindings, so fields which are zero sized will be filled with random junk from memory). It also has support for identifiers (only if ISIS database is created by IsisMarc), see to_hash. Homepage:
