marcdb

Ed Summers has kindly made available marcdb.
marcdb is a little utility for reading in marc data into a relational database. The magic of sqlalchemy and elixir mean that you can use any supported rdbms: postgres, sqlite, mysql, etc...you'll just need to make sure you've got the relevant database driver installed.
Still available is MARC RTP for converting selected fields into a format databases accept. With these two tools and Terry Reese's MarcEdit converting MARC to other formats should be a snap.
