Publisher's description

MarcEdit is a comprehensive MARC editing software suite that includes tools like a MarcEditor, XML API, OAI Harvester and unicode support. MarcEdit provides users with a straightforward GUI application that can be used for global MARC or XML record editing. In addition to the GUI application, MarcEdit 5.0 also comes with a console application that can be run via the command line on any Linux, MAC or Windows systems running the .NET or MONO frameworks.
The MarcEditor provides the user with a functioning Wordpad integrated within the MarcEdit application itself. It has been provided to aid in the rapid development of records. In addition to providing the user with a simple wordpad, the MarcEditor contains a number of MARC specific features to help make editing and analying MARC records a snap. Moreover, the MarcEditor is currently the only part of the MarcEdit program that allows users to interact with it directly through script. Users are able to print and receive characters from the MarcEditor screen, as well as tap into the Replace Text functions, and the Add/Delete Field functions. Finally, since MarcEdit 4.5 , the MarcEditor has been improved so that users can now create UTF-8 encoded MARC records. In previous versions of MarcEdit, the MarcEditor would display unicode characters but not save the data as Unicode.
