MARC::Charset 0.4

MARC::Charset 0.4 now supports EastAsian character sets. MARC/Perl is a Perl 5 library for reading, manipulating, outputting and converting bibliographic records in the MARC format. The MAchine Readable Cataloging format was designed by the Library of Congress in the late 1960s in order to allow libraries to convert their card catalogs into a digital format. The MARC format was standardized as ANSI/NISO Z39.2 in 1971 and is now being used by libraries around the world to provide computerized access to their collections. MARC::Charset is a module for doing MARC-8/UTF8 translation.
