These are some recipes for useful things you might want to do with ruby-marc. If you need a file of MARC records to work with, you can download one from here: http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=mediatype%3A%22data%22%20MARC.
Recipe: read in a large file of marc records, pull out one of them and write it to a separate file
require 'rubygems' require 'marc' reader = MARC::Reader.new('/usr/local/projects/bl-demo/data/lc_records.utf8.mrc') record = reader.first writer = MARC::Writer.new('/tmp/file2') writer.write(record) writer.close
